Music Around The Globe

April 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Every culture produces distinctive folk music, often born of dance (jigs and polkas) or inspired by nature. And the folk music composers hear when they’re young often wields a life-long influence. This buoyant program offers African American idioms in Florence Price’s powerful Third Symphony, Norwegian elements in Edvard Grieg’s Morning Mood and, in Aleppo Songs, the Middle Eastern roots of Syrian-American composer Kareem Roustom. Also represented are Mexican, Chinese and Hungarian composers, along with Poland’s Frédéric Chopin, in a piano concerto starring Nita Qiu, an extraordinarily talented YPSCA Young People’s Concerto Competition winner.
