Bartók Quartet Cycle (Calder Quartet): 2 and 6

Iva Bittová

The Calder Quartet is joined by vocalist and violinist Iva Bittová, who ". . . represents a peculiarly Eastern European blend of tradition and modernity. Combining training in theater with the iconoclasm of Velvet Revolution–inspired rock and an abiding interest in native folk idioms, she developed a highly evocative style…Ms. Bittová is a true cosmopolitan, but she remains grounded in local expressions, and her own physicality. She takes on the role of the singer as town crier whose voice animates old myths and current news" —New York Times

Bartók, Janáček, and improvisations.
