Boise Phil's Chamber 1 Concert
Join us for an incredible kick-off to our uncorked chamber series with Guilliame Connesson’s Double Quatuor, a colorful blend of romantic, lush melodies and harmonies, and modern dance rhythms. Composed for a combined string quartet and woodwind quartet, Double Quatour is a pulsating opener. William Walton wrote the music of Façade to accompany the narration of twenty-one Edith Sitwell poems. Melissa Bagwell provides the virtuosic narration to Sitwell’s extraordinary and haunting text. Accompanying her through hornpipes, tangos, waltzes, yodeling songs, and other exciting adventures is a sextet comprised of flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, percussion and two cellos.
