For a couple centuries now, composers have sought out one special source for inspiration and (more often than not) a catchy bit of melody. Their secret? Folk music. Bartók to Bebop
presents the works of four very different composers -- Robert Schumann, Béla Bartók, Chick Corea and Benedikt Brydern -- each influenced by the folk music of his respective homeland. Hear Schumann's passionate Piano Quartet Op. 47
, Bartók's fiery duos for two violins, Corea's rock/jazz fusion and Brydern's witty Bebop for Beagles
. Such an eclectic program demands truly remarkable performers: In this case, virtuosic couple (and Levine faculty artists) cellist Vasily Popov and pianist Ralitza Patcheva are teaming up with the dazzling violin/viola duo "marcolivia" (Marc Ramirez and Olivia Hajioff). Enjoy the latest installment of Levine's Folk Music Reimagined: Culture, Tradition, Fusion
series at the Washington DCJCC.
