European Mosaic

Monday, September 26, 2016
7:30 p.m.; Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Celebrate the season with a journey into the expressive and melodic folk music of Eastern Europe, a perennial source of inspiration for composers. Brahms’ monumental first piano quartet, with homage to Hungarian folk tunes, is a sweeping romantic work of symphonic proportions scaled for four virtuoso players. Kodály and Farkas draw from the rich musical language of Hungary and Romania to reflect traditional melodies in new expressions, while Stravinsky weaves a sonic tapestry from Russian songs that are both religious and sweetly sentimental. Guest soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg and harpist Marguerite Lynn Williams join Rembrandt to guide you along on a tuneful, emotional trek.

Guest Artists:
Josefien Stoppelenburg, Soprano
Marguerite Lynn Williams, Harp
