Martin Rokeach http://wrti.org en String Circle http://wrti.org/post/string-circle <p>All kinds of strings are circling on <strong>Now Is the Time, Saturday, March 1st at 9 pm</strong> Eastern on the all-classical stream at wrti.org and WRTI-HD2. The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet starts off with Daniel Bernard Roumain's homage to places he's lived and loved. <em>Ghetto Strings</em> visits Harlem, Liberty City in South Florida, the Motor City, and the land of his parents, Haiti. Ethel is the string quartet playing <em>String Circle 1</em> by Kenji Bunch, who, since he's also an accomplished violist, knows his way around strings.<br /><br />But we go to Phillip Rhodes for a solo viola dance suite, and inspired by Bach. It's the <em>Partita</em>, from 1977. Full circle is how we'll finish the show, with guitars, but this time two of them, the wonderful Anderson-Fader Duo. From their CD <em>Le Cirque</em> is <em>Fantasy on 12 Strings</em> by Martin Rokeach.<br /> Fri, 28 Feb 2014 18:24:24 +0000 Kile Smith 7047 at http://wrti.org String Circle
