Palaver Strings returns to BMC with ‘Homeland’ on Nov. 10

BRATTLEBORO — Palaver Strings' Beehive Chamber Series returns to the Brattleboro Music Center (BMC) Friday, Nov. 10, with a program entitled "Homeland."

The 7 p.m. concert will explore folk-inspired music by diverse composers paying homage to their homelands: Carlos Guastavino (Argentina), Violetta Parra (Chile), Leoš Janáček (Czech Republic), and Béla Bártok (Hungary). Their works explore the essence of their cultural-political landscape, using folk material from everyday life.

The musical journey concludes with Brahms' Trio in A minor, which he composed after visiting his friend, clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld, in Meiningen, Germany.

Palaver Strings includes Sergio Muñoz, viola; Matthew Smith, cello; and Peipei Song, piano.

Tickets are $20 general admission or $25 at the door. Contact, 802-257-4523, or [email protected].
