Performance: Musicians from Marlboro II
Mar 21 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Purcell’s Chacony in G Minor inspired the third movement of Britten’s luminous second string quartet, written to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Purcell’s death. In turn, Britten’s work forms the basis of this concert, which also includes Haydn’s Divertimento in G and Dvorak’s inimitably joyous string sextet, a perennial Marlboro favorite. Performing are violinists Anna Lee and Alexi Kenney, violinist/violist Luosha Fang, violist Hsin-Yun Huang, and cellists Sujin Lee and Judith Serkin.

The Washington Post wrote of a previous Marlboro concert at the Freer, “What, exactly, are they putting in the water at the Marlboro Music Festival? Not only is the virtuosity of Musicians from Marlboro . . . consistently jaw-dropping, but the freshness, rich imagination and sheer vitality of their playing is enough to make even the most jaded concertgoer edge to the front of his seat.”

The Tale of Genji: A Musical Narrative
Mar 24 @ 2:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Featuring violinist Ikuko Kawai

Follow Japan’s famous Tale of Genji in this original interpretation for violin, keyboard, and traditional Japanese instruments, led by popular violinist and composer Ikuko Kawai. Surtitles will allow the audience to follow the narration in English. The original Tale of Genji was written in the eleventh century by a woman in the Japanese royal court and recounts the life of Hikaru Genji, the Shining Prince. The author also created hundreds of other characters for this work, often called the world’s first novel. Japanese artworks—including screens, paintings, and illustrated books—depicting scenes from the story are currently on display in the Freer.

Kawai made her US debut at Carnegie Hall in 2008 and her European premiere in 2015 at the Paris Opera. Her virtuoso compositions are familiar to international figure-skating fans, especially Red Violin, used by American gold medalist Michelle Kwan. At this performance she will be accompanied by Tomoka Nagasu on biwa and shakuhachi, Miho Yoshiba on koto, Toshihiko Kato on nohkan and tsuzumi (percussion), and Hisanobu Notsu on keyboard.
