We're getting in to the holiday spirit, and celebrating with a FREE chamber music event. We're exploring string duo works for violin and cello by three iconic Hungarian composers — Bartók, Kodály, and Ligeti. These musical pioneers shook up classical music in the 20th century, weaving Magyar folk music with innovations like micropolyphony into their work to create original and expressive soundscapes. In keeping with the theme, there will also be traditional Eastern European folk music, Christmas treats, and a specially-themed DJ set from Nonclassical residents; expect to devour Beigli, dance to folk tunes, and shout “Boldog Karácsonyt!” by the end of the night.
We've invited two very exciting young musicians we've had our eye on to perform-
Violinist ELOISA-FLEUR THOM (" … a young British violinist of the front rank, impressively polished but with a distinctive and refined ear for character which is already making its special mark with audiences.” – Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, Principal, RAM)
Cellist MAX RUISI (Principal cellist, European Union Chamber Orchestra)
Individually the pair have been recipients of a long list of awards and together they are set to make a significant impact next year with their group 12 Ensemble, who have just been named Ensemble in Residence 2014 at the Forge in Camden.
