N.C. Symphony Quartet: Strings @ Kings

When: Thu., March 3, 9 p.m. 2016

The Kings-based series of the N.C. Symphony is the place to go to find the institution’s most adventurous small-ensemble programs. This time, we’re treated to four works for strings from the past century. The centerpiece is John Luther Adams’s recent The Wind in High Places, in which the string quartet becomes one giant Aeolian harp. George Crumb’s Cello Sonata imbues Bartók with hints of experimentalism. Witold Lutosławski’s Bucolics for viola and cello offer five short flashes of Polish socialist realism, and Prokofiev’s Sonata for Two Violins should provide a boisterous close. —Dan Ruccia

Price: $8-$11
