Time travel with Apollo from colonial New Spain and 18th century Italy to modern Mexico...and back again. Manuel Ponce revisits the spirit of his ancestor Manuel de Zumaya in a revival of Baroque styles. Nationalistic composers Carlos Chávez and Silvestre Revueltas - while championing the folkloric music of their native Mexico - also found inspiration in the radical musical ideas of Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. Explore the fascinating cross-pollination of musical murmurs and inspirations in this musical kaleidoscope. University of Houston musicologist Dr. Howard Pollack presents a pre-concert lecture. (Sunday date ONLY; lecture begins at 5:15pm.) PROGRAM: • Carlos Chávez: String Quartet No. 1 • Silvestre Revueltas: Quartet No. 4 Musica de Feria (Music of the Fair) • Stravinsky: Three Pieces for String Quartet • Manuel Ponce: Petite suite dans le style ancien (Little Suite in the Ancient Style) • Vivaldi: Trio Sonata No. 12 in D Minor, La Folia • Manuel de Zumaya: Si ya a aquella nave *Note: Concert repeats on Tuesday, March 24 (7:30pm)
