The first of two concerts from the American violinist and his friends features a series of upbeat works influenced by folk music.
American violinist Stefan Jackiw has been praised for his ‘uncommon musical substance’ that is ‘striking for its intelligence and sensitivity’ (The Boston Globe). Three friends join him to perform chamber pieces based on folk music.
Sir James MacMillan’s Violin Sonata uses a folk-like melody inspired by Scottish writer William Soutar. Charles Ives included American folksongs and fraternity tunes in his Piano Trio, while Johannes Brahms’s First Piano Quartet culminates in an exuberant finale alla Zingarese, or ‘in the Gypsy style’.
