Birdfoot Festival: Nothing But the Truth

Framed by Dvorak’s “American” Quartet, this concert examines the complex subjects of identity, experience, and truth. Inspired by African-American spirituals and songs, Dvorak’s quartet is an outsider’s portrait of America’s energy and potential approaching the turn of the century. Juxtaposed with this, spirituals, arranged by New Orleans’ own Moses Hogan, and the musical voice of Florence Price, reveal a complex counterpoint to Dvorak’s optimism. Works by Ruth Crawford Seeger, Caroline Shaw, and Johann Christoph Bach (J.S. Bach’s uncle), will also be featured, while the cherished concept of justice itself is examined in Garth Knox’s Nothing but the Truth, a musical courtroom drama without a predetermined outcome…will the musicians be found guilty or innocent?

Ruth Crawford Seeger: Andante

Johann Christoph Bach: “Ach dass ich Wassers gnug hätte”

Garth Knox: Nothing but the Truth

Antonín Dvořák: String Quartet No. 12, “American”

Caroline Shaw: By and By

Florence Price: Songs to the Dark Virgin

Moses Hogan, arranger: Spirituals

$25 General Admission
$15 Students (with ID)
