Palaver Strings’ Through the Looking Glass

2/12/22

For Palaver Strings' final chamber concert of the year, they’ll explore some of the new musical ideas that propel chamber music tradition into the future.

For Palaver Strings' final chamber concert of the year, they’ll explore some of the new musical ideas that propel chamber music tradition into the future. The evening begins with Caeroline Shaw’s Entr’acte, composed in response to a Haydn quartet, and in dialogue with the classical tradition in general. Riffing on classical gestures, Shaw’s music takes us, in her words, to “the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.”

They’ll continue with a new set of original fiddle tunes by Palaver’s own violist, Elizabeth Moore, and conclude with Florence Price’s A Minor String Quartet, which incorporates both twentieth-century compositional ideas and African-American vernacular music.

We hope you will join Palaver Strings for this journey beyond the looking glass, as we catch a glimpse of a bold and brilliant future for their craft.

3:30pm-5:00pm and 7:30pm-9:00pm
