Creative Capitals Disc 5 (2018)

<em>Creative Capitals</em> Disc 5

The fifth disc of Creative Capitals LIVE features performances by the Calidore String Quartet. The quartet is joined by flutist Stephanie McNab for the selections from the monumental Musical Offering, produced after an aging J. S. Bach traveled to Berlin in 1747 to answer the contrapuntal challenge issued by King Frederick the Great. Mozart subsequently appeared at the same court, this time before King Friedrich Wilhelm II, to honor the new King of Prussia with his set of Prussian Quartets. The disc concludes with the Fifth String Quartet of Béla Bartók, who almost singlehandedly established a nationalist Hungarian compositional language through years of devoted and immersive study of his nation’s folk traditions.
