Our 2024 Feature- European Cruise

Among the many cultural contributions of coastal European countries, music from Italy, Spain, France, the British Isles, and Scandinavia has enriched not just locally, but worldwide, inspiring each nation’s diaspora as well as the broader society. Please join the Nissitissit String Quartet for our European Cruise concert as we touch on the music of each nationality, often contrasting a beloved classical work from centuries ago with something contemporary and iconic.  The French set, for example, pairs The Swan, the soaring cello solo from Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns with our arrangement of the Ragtime movement from Claude Bolling’s Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano.  The British set begins with a classical gem on a Welsh theme by Vaughan Williams and ends with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody via an Irish medley, the Scottish Air “Loch Lomand,” The Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, and a Beatles tune in between. Up north, Grieg’s Wedding Day at Troldhaugen starts the Scandinavian tour in Norway, setting the stage for a Swedish finale of Abba’s Dancing Queen.
