Join Aurora’s Leader Maia Cabeza in a mesmerising performance of chamber works sparked by European folk music in this atmospheric evening Lock-In.
By turns meditative and exhilarating, the programme weaves together original field recordings of folk songs with dynamic performances of 20th-century works inspired by Central and Eastern European folk music. Hear Bartók’s fiery Rhapsody No. 2 for violin and piano, Kodály’s expressive Duo for violin and cello, and Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff’s little-heard Sonata for Solo Violin of 1927, which bristles with percussive effects and boisterous folk rhythms.
Performed in darkness, with the audience invited to lie down on cushions among the musicians, Folk Roots offers a spellbinding and immersive encounter with the captivating world of European folk music.
