Apollo Chamber Player’s Scandinavian Hoedown
by: St.John Flynn, January 11, 2014 1:01:00 pm
As well as string quartets by two of Scandinavia’s most famous composers, the Norwegian Edvard Grieg and the Finnish Jean Sibelius, the Apollo Chamber Players will also present their own transcriptions of traditional Norwegian folks melodies, originally played on the Hardanger fiddle, but now arranged for the fiddle and classical string trio.
The Apollo members, in the Geary Studio, talk with St.John Flynn and offer a movement of the Grieg quartet from the program, along with a tune featuring the Hardanger fiddle...and some stomping!
The Apollo Chamber Players present “Scandinavian Spirit” Sunday, January 12th, 6PM, in the Parish Hall of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Rice Village.
