Classix Two – Tribute

Featuring: Reno Phil String Quartet

Reflections of cultural pride are on full display as Classix Two features our very own Reno Phil String Quartet and a program where each composer pays homage to their heritage. Opening with a colorful piece by American composer Gabriela Lena Frank, she draws on her Lithuanian-Peruvian-Chinese heritage for inspiration as well as music she loves written by English composer Benjamin Bitten.

We transition to the music of Zoltan Kodaly who incorporated the folk tunes of his beloved bohemian homeland into his compositions, and finally, the quintessentially Russian sounds of Tchaikovsky.
