Event Details

This event is part of the Incredible Floridas - Chamber Landscapes concert series curated by Kim Williams.

Forsake your metaphorical camp-beds for another compare-and-contrast of two contemporaneous works. It’s 1937. Old Alfred’s final quartet and youngish Margaret’s first, each lift up their eyes to European hills: the former to his beloved Dvořák’s gentle slopes, the latter to Bartok’s rockier outcrops. Twenty years later a girl was born in far off Tashkent, and by 2015 her radiant Piano Quintet, while glancing everywhere from the baroque to the Charleston, displays a musical gaze entirely her own.


Jacob Abela, piano
Flinders Quartet
John Gaden, poetry
