Boston String Players presents "The Heritage Project"
February 4, 2012
Boston String Players presents "The Heritage Project," a showcase of music from various cultures and genres that make up the creative backbone of this group. Musicians from Greece, Japan, and Jordan will perform works composed in their respective home countries, as well as a new arrangement of Radiohead's "15 Step" by Sam Stapleton, and Debussy's "Danses Sacree et Profane" featuring harpist Iona Comsa. Our program will culminate with Leonid Desyatnikov's arrangement of Piazzola's epic "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires" featuring Lilit Hartunian on solo violin. This piece, which famously quotes Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," represents a new direction for traditional classical music, infused with a breath of "Nuevo Tango."
Our dress rehearsal is free and open to the public on February 3rd from 7:00-9:30pm, and the concert is Saturday February 4th, both at the First Church in Cambridge (11 Garden Street, Harvard Square). Doors open at 7:30pm, and the concert will be followed by a reception with drinks and snacks where you can mingle with musicians and fellow music lovers. Tickets are $18 at the door, $12 online, and $12 for students (please show valid ID at the door). www.BostonStringPlayers.org
