Dancewicz-Doucet Duo Concert

The Dancewicz-Doucet Duo is thrilled to start 2019 with an exciting concert

on Saturday, February 2 at 7.30PM

 at the University of St.Thomas Cullen Hall!

ORIGINS” is a unique recital featuring a truly explosive program of works by Norwegian, Polish, Hungarian and Turkish composers. Each piece is an example of music inspired by folk roots – either native to the composers themselves, or borrowed:Norwegian dance-like motives saturate Edvard Grieg’s gorgeous Violin Sonata in C minor, just as the music from the Polish Tatra Mountains region defines Karol Szymanowski’s “Dance” from his ballet “Harnasie” – its barbaric, even brutal idiom depicts the legend of Tatra rebels, as they dance their rite by the fire. The Duo will also present “Flying Sirto”, a fascinating virtuosic folk dance-driven piece by an award-winning young Turkish composer Erberk Eryilmaz. To close the concert, we will play the beloved “Six Romanian Dances” by Bela Bartok
This eclectic assemblage reflects The Dancewicz-Doucet Duo’s fascination with diversity in the music of different cultures and times. This recital is part of The Duo’s University of St.Thomas Recital Series.

The admission is FREE and open to everyone (donations accepted). Since we deliver short talks about the music we perform, it is an excellent opportunity to bring your kids and friends who might not be too familiar with classical music. It will be fun, educational, passionate and exciting!
