Though still largely unknown outside Ukraine, Liatoshynsky’s music reveals fascinating parallels with western works and inspires thought-provoking conversations between musical worlds. In our closing concert, Liatoshynsky’s Third and Fourth Quartets will be presented alongside the Third Quartet of Béla Bartók, with whom he shared similar interests in national musics, and the Sextet of American composer Aaron Copland, whose own career charted similar paths to those of his Ukrainian contemporary.
