The Newport String Project announces the second installment of its Newport County Concert Series on Saturday, December 2nd at the Newport Art Museum, and Sunday, December 3rd at the Four Corners Arts Center, featuring its resident ensemble, the Newport String Quartet, will performing dazzling works by Bartók, Bacewicz, Kodály, Schulhoff, and Darvishi.
The concert features an eclectic program of duos, trios, and quartets by composers whose music has been subject to various forms of oppression and censorship. From familiar voices of the 20th century (Bartók and Kodály), to lesser known voices, whose work is finally getting its due (Bacewicz and Schulhoff), to important voices of today (Aftab Darvishi), this atmospheric and thought-provoking program is not to be missed.
Béla Bartók, Selections from Duos (arr for viola and cello)
Grażyna Bacewicz, Folk Themes for Two Violins
Zoltán Kodály, Serenade
Aftab Darvishi, Daughters of Sol
Erwin Schulhoff, Five Pieces for String Quartet
