THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED IN A PREVIOUS SEASON!
This concert explores the incredible sonic possibilities of the cimbalom. A trapezoid-shaped hammer dulcimer, cimbalom crops up regularly in the folk music of Hungary and Romania. The instrument was championed by a number of 20th-century classical composers, chief among them György Kurtág, whose pieces frame this Pop-Up program. A world premiere for violin and cimbalom by French Canadian composer François Rose rounds out this exploration of the instrument’s immense palette.
Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
