Share this event:

Join Apollo for an exploration of folk music inspirations in the celebrated string quartets of Maurice Ravel and Leoš Janáček. Program features Apollo-arranged folk melodies from the Basque and Slavic regions, and the premiere of a newly commissioned work by acclaimed Rice University Professor Karim Al-Zand, based on Bulgarian folk dances.

The Apollo Chamber Players is a non-profit chamber music organization that explores the intersection of classical and folk music and provides exciting, innovative and culturally enriching programs to a wide audience.While illuminating the unique folk sounds and styles imbued in classical composers' works, Apollo discovers and recreates lost, rarely heard, and culturally significant folk music through well-crafted arrangements and commissions for chamber ensembles.
