Five Denver-based musicians will collaborate on this program of women composers inspired by song. Featuring the string quartet, Pegged (Leena Waite and Erik Peterson, violins; Phillip Stevens, viola; Chloe Hong, cello) and vocalist Kali Paguirigan, the program will include three songs (Unravel, Hunter, and Hyperballad) by Icelandic singer Björk (quartet arrangements by the Brodsky Quartet), and Entr’acte and And So by American composer, violinist, and vocalist Caroline Shaw. The string quartet will also perform two movements from String Quartet No. 2 in A minor by Florence Price, a 20th century female black composer whose music was inspired by African American spirituals and gospel music.
Björk: Unravel, Hunter, and Hyperballad
Caroline Shaw: And So, Entr’acte
