Apollo Chamber Players welcome Latin Grammy-winning violinist and new Houstonian Eddy Marcano for a program featuring new compositions and arrangements of Venezuelan folk music, collected by ethnomusicologists Juan Liscano and Charles Seeger for the Library of Congress.

Continuing our Bartók string quartet cycle, we highlight the Hungarian composer’s exuberantly primal fourth string quartet, considered by many to be among his very greatest compositions and most deeply connected to his lifelong exploration of folk music.


  • Eddy Marcano: Arrangements of Venezuelan folk songs 
  • Albert Hernández: Ensayo de la Suite #1
  • Béla Bartók: String Quartet No. 4

Guest Artists:
Eddy Marcano, violin and composer/arranger
