Freya String Quartet & Arabesque Winds
The Freya String Quartet joins forces with the nationally-touring Arabesque Winds in an intimate concert featuring masterworks by Gyorgy Ligeti and Bohuslav Martinu alongside the music of Alia Musica members Matt Heap, Federico Garcia, Lenny Young and Ivan Jimenez. The program highlights Martinu's rarely-performed Nonet, a quirky and pastoral work that requires both ensembles to perform in tandem.

Budapest on the Bluff: String Theory
This all-string program ranges from the playfulness of "Papa", Haydn's recollection of the Gypsy dances of his youth, through the harrowing intensity of Kodály's monumental work for solo cello (featuring Adam Liu), reveling in the lushness of Dohnányi's virtually unknown Violin Sonata, ending with the affectionate and affecting Rumanian Dances of Bartók and the devilish showpiece Tzigane (Gypsy). PSO Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley makes his highly-anticipated debut "on the Bluff."
