Give yourself over to this spirited journey featuring the sublime and visceral music of Dvo?ák and Bartók.
Bohemianism is both an idea and an ideal. It stands for unconventionality and the artistic life. At the same time, it's nostalgic for the smell of the earth. It craves something real and true.
Who better than the ACO to lead you on this journey?
Bartók's passion for the folk music of his native Hungary is visceral. The themes and rhythms from the rural past infuse his Fifth String Quartet with sinew and bite in a new arrangement for string orchestra. Dvo?ák's sublime Serenade, one of the most loved pieces of music for string orchestra, summons the feeling of warm sun on your back and the wistful remembrance of other times and places.
Bartók and Dvo?ák are in fine company with the Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw. Like Dvo?ák, a love of dance permeates her music, with the dizzying range of her many artistic collaborations animating every bar.
