Faculty Artist Series: Fiddlers Two
Irina Muresanu and James Stern have both performed at The Clarice with epic unaccompanied violin recitals. Now these two revered faculty combine forces to show that a rich world of sound can be found in the top half of a string quartet. The program features the magical sonorities of the French Baroque, the Classical perfection of Mozart, the daredevil stunts of violin geekdom, two loving homages to the diversity of 20th-century art and a romp through the Hungarian countryside by an Oscar-winning Hollywood composer.
