This Saturday March 8th at 7pm, the Newport String Project presents a concert featuring music by Beethoven and Dvorak at Channing Memorial Church, 135 Pelham St, Newport RI 02840. We are delighted to be joined by two superb guest artists, Megan Koch, cello and Aaron Jackson, piano.
For composers, choosing the work that will be your opus 1 is a very significant decision. You will have the opportunity to hear Beethoven's remarkably forward thinking Piano Trio op 1 no 1.
We will also be taking a jaunt through the sunny Bohemian countryside courtesy of Antonin Dvorak. His Malickosti (Bagatelles) op. 47 were written in the first twelve days of May 1878 for two violins, cello and a little foot-pedalled reed organ called a harmonium. The first of the bagatelles features a Czech folksong called Hraly Dudy ("The Pipes are Playing") which returns throughout the piece - you can listen to the original Czech folksong here.
All welcome - bring your friends!
