“What is American?” PUBLIQuartet ponders this question through a musical kaleidoscope of composers and diverse genres that make up America’s rich musical history. Featuring a reimagination of Dvořák’s “American” Quartet, in which the composer’s original melodies meet PUBLIQuartet’s blues, jazz, and rock-inflected improvisations, the works on this program connect the dots to honor the past, present, and future of American music.
