Directions



We continue our series of works playable by an ensemble of masked string players. Along with the main work by Tchaikovsky and a great Fritz Kreisler showpiece for soloist Ken Aiso, we perform works by classical composers who drew on the music of the people -- Grainger and Holst with English folksong (Holst memorably juxtaposes "Greensleeves" with "The Irish Washerwoman"!), and Copland with his exhilarating barn dance.
