2019 Summer Concert #3: A Day in the Life of Newburyport

Music by Ravel & Bartók, plus our commissioned piece by Robert Bradshaw: “A Day in the Life of Newburyport” for string quartet, *World Premiere* Also featuring poetry on the theme by Rhina Espaillat & Alfred Nicol

The Ravel Duo is a virtuosic dialogue between two siblings, one smaller and higher, the other deep and sonorous.  Sometimes in harmony, sometimes in competition, the piece is alternatingly suave, playful, jazzy, and contemplative, yet always somehow so French.

Contrasting with the urbane sophistication of Ravel, Bartók’s fourth string quartet seems to spring directly from the rough soil of the Hungarian countryside: rocks, roots, bugs, and all. The five movements are written in mirror image
