FEATURES MUSIC FOR TWO VIOLINS, FROM BARTÓK TO BERIO, AND SPECIALLY-DESIGNED LIGHTING BY ARTIST MAHMOUD HAMADANI


On October 11, 2012, at New York’s Symphony Space, the Chuns continue their tribute to the Hungarian composer with “Folk Inflections with Angela and Jennifer Chun,” a program featuring a second set of selections of the Bartók duos along with some of Luciano Berio’s Duetti per due violini, which were written in homage to Bartók; Edmund Rubbra’s Phantasy for two violins and piano; and Bartók’s Roumanian Folk Dances for violin and piano, which the performers have arranged for two violins and piano.

The concert also features pianist Nelson Padgett, who collaborated with the Chuns on their first harmonia mundi recording, Fantasy, and a specially-designed lighting component by Iranian-born artist Mahmoud Hamadani.

The concert is part of the Symphony Space Salon Series, events enhanced by conversations with the artists. After performing the Bartók duos, the Chuns and Nelson Padgett will talk about the music with the Symphony Space Artistic Director, composer Laura Kaminsky.
