A Wonderful World
September 30, 2016 at 8:00 pm–10:00 pm
Palaver Strings will open their third season in Somerville with a program inspired by Earth and the natural world. From Mark O’Connor’s sweet and nostalgic Appalachia Waltz to John Luther Adam’s frigid and solemn The Wind in High Places, each piece will explore a different perspective of the earth and our relationship to it.
Accompanying Adams’ string quartet will be a set of photographs which uncover the hidden areas where man and nature intersect. Special for ArtWeek, ensemble musician Matthew Smith will give a brief talk about the photographs and their connection to the music. The program will allow audience members to observe the natural beauty that exists within the city’s sea of concrete and brick, and the influence we as humans have on the natural resources surrounding Boston. We hope you can join us in an evening of reflection and discovery.
