Description

 

Join the Apollo Chamber Players for a program exploring the connections between European classical composers and the folk music from which they drew inspiration. This concert features original string quartet arrangements of folk melodies from the Basque and Slavic regions as a stylistic and interpretive bridge to seminal works by Ravel and Janácek. The world premiere of Fantasy on Bulgarian Rhythms, a commissioned work by Karim Al-Zand, illuminates folk music as a timeless muse.
