Emotions will fluctuate in this program of accessible 20th century pieces. Three are playful and jazzy, and two are serenely serious with a hint of the mysterious. Copperwave shines with the luster of brass interwoven with a fun Latin rhythm, making an apt introduction for Piazzola's L'Histoire du Tango. Rooted in New Orleans jazz, Coleman's frisky Red Clay and Mississippi Delta will thrill you with its wild virtuosity. Then, you'll experience more solemn beauty with Bridge's Phantasy for Piano Quartet that finds inspiration in the Romantic era. Bartok's series of string quartets are often compared to Beethoven's with their intensity, perfect construction, and genius. String Quartet No. 3 shows exactly why Bartok is considered a musical powerhouse.
