ASQ: American Fantasy

Frederick Tillis: Spiritual Fantasy No.12
Reena Esmail: String Quartet (Ragamala) (2013)
Antonín Dvořák: Quartet in F Major, Op. 96,  “American”

In a program dedicated to the boundlessness of the American spirit, the Arianna Quartet performs three quartets that showcase distinct and diverse soundscapes inspired by American experiences. The ASQ leads this program with Frederick Tillis’ Spiritual Fantasy No.12, an exultant and contemplative jazz and spiritual inspired work that embodies the sound of Tillis’ unique American perspective.  American composer Reena Esmail’s mesmerizing string quartet “Ragamala” follows, exploring the layered textures of the Indian tradition of raags, where free explorations and elaborations of singular musical ideas evolve into transcendent expressions of time and space.  Dvorak’s celebratory “American” Quartet rounds out the evening with a fusion of sounds inspired by Native American drumming traditions, African American spirituals, twittering birdcalls from the American Midwest, and Czech folk music tradition.

 

**There is a pre-show lecture inside the Lee Theater beginning around 7:10pm. Arrive early to hear more about the music!**
