NEXUS Concert 3: Folk Songs in Counterpoint
Wednesday, September 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm CDT$10 – $40
Guarneri Hall is delighted to welcome NEXUS Chamber Music Chicago back to the Hall for its second season. With four concerts planned August 28th through September 6th, 2019, NEXUS has programmed a wide variety of chamber works, from standard classics to lesser-known pieces that justly deserve a place in the canon. Co-artistic directors Brian Hong and Alexander Hersh are joined by a roster of talented young musicians (a different group each week). Also, this year NEXUS has extended fellowships to two outstanding Chicago College of the Performing Arts students who will join guest artists on the programs.
Each NEXUS concert has a different theme. Concert 3 is entitled “Folk Songs in Counterpoint.”
Jean Barrière: Sonata No. 10 in G Major for Two Celli
Danish Folk Songs for String Quartet (traditional, arr. by the Danish String Quartet)
Florence Price: Five Folksongs in Counterpoint
Anton Stepanovich Arensky: String Quartet for Violin, Viola, and Two Celli, Op. 35
Brian Hong, violin
Siwoo Kim, violin
Tanner Menees, viola
Brannon Cho, cello
Alexander Hersh, cello
In normal times, we livestream most of our live concerts. In these times, out of concern for our audiences and artists, all Guarneri Hall events are virtual. Find details on how to access each event on its event page.
