Pianist Andy Rangell and violinist Aaron Boyd perform works of the great 20th century Romanian composer George Enescu, who incorporates folk-inspired music of his native land in his works. The first half of the concert will feature Enescu’s Violin and Piano Sonata No. 3.
While Enescu and EVIYAN are a century apart, the fusion of folk with other musical styles and traditions will create a unique musical tapestry.
The ensemble EVIYAN brings together ECM recording artist Iva Bittova and tabla master Sandeep Das (of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble) with composer/clarinetist Evan Ziporyn and guitar virtuoso Gyan Riley for an evening of original works inspired by Eastern European folk music, Indian classical music, jazz, rock, cabaret, and minimalism.
