Eclectic Collections 3: Fairy Tale

February 9, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Last in a series of three hour-long concerts at The Forge, celebrating an array of 20th-century duos and trios.

A programme of amazing classical music from the East. Fikret Amirov is from Azerbaijan, and his suite of songs and dances reflects a melting pot of influences from the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia.  Janacek and Suk represent the Czech republic: Pohadka is a set of fairy tale scenes for cello, written after the death of Janacek’s daughter, and Elegie commemorates the death of poet Julius Zeyer.  Russian composer Kapustin provides an intense, virtuosic jazzy trio to round off the series.

Fikret Amirov – Six Pieces  (flute and piano)

Leos Janacek – Pohadka (cello and piano)

Josef Suk – Elegie (trio)

Nikolai Kapustin – Trio
