Be the first to hear it! Q Concerts is pleased to present the premiere performance of Forever, My Grace, a new work by LA-based composer Ian Gottlieb, performed by arx duo. The premiere was originally broadcast online on November 22. It's available now for streaming here. A concert just for you! 


Based on an imaginary folk tale in which a king asks five philosophers to define the infinite, each movement offers a different conception of forever. Performed by percussion ensemble arx duo, Forever, My Grace introduces the listener to new worlds of sound, by turns calming and invigorating.

In a program that celebrates two groundbreaking women composers, you’ll hear Italy’s Maddalena Casulana’s mysterious Five Madrigals — songs she wrote in the 16th century, arranged for string quartet, and, from four centuries later, African American composer Florence Price’s Five Folksongs in Counterpoint, based on American songs and spirituals including Oh My Darlin’ Clementine, Shortnin’ Bread, and Swing Low Sweet Chariot.

Music tells a tale! Selected from Béla Bartók’s 44 Duets for Two Violins, this set of twenty-five pieces, each based on a peasant folk melody, is a series of miniatures: a mosquito dance, a wedding song, a march, a lullaby.

We’ve arranged the pieces to tell an overarching tale, a love story that begins on May Day and ends in surprise. These charming duets, as short as twenty-seven seconds, as long as two minutes, delight the ear and the imagination. We dare you not to tap your foot!   ​
