Ciompi Concert No. 4 featuring Edgar Meyer

When: Sat., April 16, 2 p.m. 2016

Edgar Meyer’s delightful string quintet sits at the crossroads of classical and bluegrass. The opening movement is an abstract set of variations on a folk-like melody, rooted by Meyer’s thrumming low end. The rest of the work is even looser, occasionally feeling more like a jam session than a composition. Meyer sticks around for Dvořák’s second string quintet, a prim evocation of Bohemia and Moravia. Finally, to celebrate fifty years at Duke, the Ciompi Quartet has invited many alumni back for a performance of Bach’s ubiquitous Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. —Dan Ruccia
