Ciompi Concert No. 3 feat. Jamie Laval, Fiddle

Saturday, February 4, 2017 - 8:00pm

Event Price: 
$25, $15 Ages 30 & under, $10 All Students.

The third concert of the season finds the Ciompi Quartet exploring works inspired by folk music. They play the bright, childlike melodies of Britten's Three Divertimenti, the young composer's sketch for a quartet that never materialized. They then turn to two contemporary pieces: Pulitzer Prize-winner and Greenville, NC native Caroline Shaw's Entr'acte, a Haydn-inspired minuet; and the world premiere of a newly-commissioned piece by Duke Ph.D. graduate and University of South Carolina professor David Kirkland Garner, influenced by roots music and played by Celtic fiddler Jamie Laval. Dirty Linen Magazine raved that Laval's "superb technique, fluid dexterity, subtle bowing, and purity of tone are unparallelled." The program culminates in Dvo¿ák's well-known "Slavonic" quartet, which takes its essence from traditional melodies of the composer's homeland.PROGRAM:Benjamin Britten: Three Divertimenti for String QuartetCaroline Shaw: Entr'acte for String QuartetDavid Kirkland Garner: New work for String Quartet and FiddleDvo¿ák: String Quartet in E-flat Major, op. 51
