Chamber Music Today - Seoul, Korea

  • IBK Chamber Music Hall 2406 Nambusunhwan-ro Seoul Korea

Chamber Music Today’s tour begins in Baroque Italy, opening the season with Antonio Vivaldi’s lively Concerto for Lute and Strings in D Major, including its highly recognizable, pastoral Largo movement. Leaping forward fifty years, we will encounter a Classical Italian composer’s interpretation of an extraordinary night in Spain, through Luigi Boccherini’s Quintet, “La Musica notturna delle strade di Madrid”, and then we conclude our sojourn in Italy with the charming virtuosity of Niccolò Pagannini’s Terzetto Concertante. The Spanish portion of our program begins after intermission, with a short set of solo guitar works, featuring the Grammy-Award winning guitarist Jason Vieaux. Manuel de Falla’s sultry suite of popular Spanish melodies, arranged for violin and piano, follows, and our program finally concludes in twentieth century America, with Aaron Jay Kernis’ pulsating 100 Greatest Dance Hits for Guitar, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello.
