Mosquito Dance Poster.jpg




Lydia Chernicoff, violin

Pamela Hentges, violin

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! Presented in collaboration with the Charleston County Public Library.

Presented in collaboration with the Charleston County Public Library.
