Florence Price: Andante moderato from String Quartet in G major
Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
We’ve packed “1001 Nights” all into one evening with Rimsky-Korsakov’s imaginative orchestral showpiece Scheherazade. Joining the KWS is German pianist Joseph Moog for Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a stunning work showcasing brilliant virtuosity. Florence Price’s Andante moderato is the second movement of her first String Quartet, fusing music of Black heritage with European art music.
