The Midsummer’s Music resident string quartet performs Piazzolla, Drago and more!
Egg Harbor, Wis. (March 15, 2021) – On March 14, the Griffon String Quartet premiered a virtual concert on YouTube and the performance is still available to view at your convenience! Watch the performance in the safety and comfort of your own home either on the Griffon’s YouTube channel or Midsummer’s YouTube channel.
The performance repertoire includes Zoltan Kodály’s Intermezzo for String Trio, which dates from around 1905, about the time Kodály began his travels to collect folk melody, and it abounds with the sounds of real Hungarian folk tunes. Also featured is Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Andante movement from his 1945 String Trio; Argentinian composer, violinist, and University of North Dakota instructor Alejandro Drago’s LaBuda’s Tantric Tango; and legendary Argentinian – and Midsummer’s Music audience favorite – Astor Piazzolla’s haunting Oblivion. The performance will continue to be available to view for a limited time after the initial release.
