400 Quail Rd., Longmont, CO 80501


Brune Macary, violin

Zachary Carrettín, violin

Claire McCahan, mezzo-soprano

Mina Gajić, piano

Nicholas Recuber, double bass

Enjoy a program that embraces a diversity of musical styles, traveling across time and across cultures including works in romantic style with Moorish-Andalusian, Roma, and Sephardic influences. Carrettin and Gajić open the program with Joseph Achron's deeply meditative Hebrew Melody. Next, Carrettin offers us unaccompanied Bach played in his distinctive manner that explores intimacy and a poetic sense of time and pulse. Gajić continues with colorful, meditative, and exotic solo piano works from her homeland—Balkan Dances by Marko Tajčević, and Recuber performs his own arrangement of a beautiful Telemann violin fantasia for the double bass. The quartet presents the Colorado premiere of Ray Granlund's Tango Peregrino and finally, Gajić is joined by Claire McCahan for Manuel de Falla's poetic song cycle, Siete canciones populares Españolas.
