Composite Identities: The Music of Schulhoff, Frank, and Bartok

This evening's program explores the idea of cultural identities in the music of Erwin Schulhoff, Gabriela Lena Frank, and Bela Bartok. Each of these composers are, to varying extents, musical anthropologists. Frank and Bartok’s music often incorporates folk and native music styles into a western classical structure, whereas Schulhoff integrates elements of modernism, neoclassicism, jazz, and dance from a number of sources and cultures.
