“With its hushed intimacy, poetic lyrics, alluring melodies and mesmerizing rhythms, bossa nova music continues to cast a spell 60 years after it first came into the world. It possesses an ineffable quality that just seems to epitomize coolness, transcend time and transport the listener to another place.” — Charles Waring

Splash! In a program that explores the mysterious, changeable nature of water, you’ll hear new and familiar pieces arranged for a bass and vibraphone duo, just for this concert. Let the current take you downriver, listen to the rain, spy on the creatures that live beneath the sea. Float lazily through Charleston harbor, and we’ll sail you home with a tune you’re sure to recognize!

In a nexus of music, art, and poetry, these four composers exchange ideas and influences across cultures, mediums, eras, and geography. Rudolf Dittrich invokes Utagawa Hiroshige’s woodblock prints in his setting of Japanese folksongs for solo piano; Tōru Takemitsu takes his inspiration from poetry, creating a world of sound informed by the great impressionist composers; Somei Satoh finds a free, flowing lyricism that suspends time; Claude Debussy draws on traditional, modal scales to craft an evocative, sensual sonata that lives somewhere between East and West.

Every listener hears something different in a piece of music, and the way we hear a piece changes over time. Blueprint shows us how composer Caroline Shaw hears Beethoven. Written hundreds of years after the quartet that inspired it, Shaw’s Blueprint explores both the modernity and the timeless essence of Beethoven’s music.

 

Come join us for both string quartets, and hear for yourself how one influences the way you hear the other. If you don’t know her work already, Caroline Shaw is a great discovery — and Ludwig van Beethoven may never sound the same.
