Expedition Quintet

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 18, 2014 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

The Expedition Quintet with Jake Schepps has a new album of music by the great Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. While the group is rooted in the stringband tradition, the result is music—and music-making—that is as fresh and exciting to our 21st-century ears as it must have been to Bartók’s first listeners so many decades ago. The EQ have all deeply studied folk music, spending years jamming in festival campgrounds and old-time fiddle gatherings, and they bring that element of musicianship and prowess to all genres. And that in turn gives their show a distinctive edge, one that stems from these many years learning folk music, and then playing music in the classical tradition. While this curious dichotomy may seem trite, it casts new light on Bartók’s brilliance, evoking the best of his Eastern European folk music transcriptions, his modernist harmony, and makes for compelling listening. jakeschepps.com/expedition-quartet
