CSO MusicNOW: Common Ground

November 21 @ 7:00 pm

a stringed instrument

Common Ground continues to highlight connections between the works of up-and-coming composers and their musical idols. Featured are two cutting-edge works and a world premiere by Xavier Foley that demonstrate his virtuosity — as well as his passion for solo works on the double bass — and two compositions for strings by American fiddle icon and composer Mark O’Connor. O’Connor’s String Quartet No. 3 fuses traditional old-time fiddling melodies with unique contemporary twists while his Strings and Threads Suite illustrates the interconnections between folk music styles hundreds of years apart.
