About this programme
In ETNOS, the Ragazze Quartet plunges deeply into the musical roots of four continents.
In ETNOS, the Ragazze Quartet plunges deeply into the musical roots of four continents. The four musicians travel through the thorough ethnographic work of Béla Bartók, the lush, thrilling tango of Astor Piazzolla, the refined Chinese 'ssue of Long Zhou and the swinging South African pulse of Kevin Volans in an unstoppable journey across the globe. The place of birth of these composers rings irrevocably in their music, sounds and melodies that have been passed on through genertions ended up in a contemporary coating and turned into master pieces of the twentieth century. ETNOS is part of the umbrella trajectory ‘Bartók Bound’.
