Axiom Quartet’s Grand and Glamorous season would not be complete without featuring some legendary composers, as well as the music of folk legends. The program will begin with Rice alum Gabriela Lena Frank’s Leyendas: An Andian Walkabout. This piece combines Andean folk music and Western classical traditions to depict various scenes from Andean culture. This concert will also feature Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1, a beautiful, incredibly moving work which also draws on folk music. As an exciting finish to this concert, they will present Niccolo Paganini’s Caprice No. 24, arranged for string quartet. Originally written for solo violin, the string quartet version still delivers all the flashiness and thrill that Paganini intended.
