Claiming a wide territory for their unusual medium, Strata traverses a world of sounds. Their vast repertoire spans from the rural, folkloric style of Béla Bartók to the urbane wit of Jean Françaix. Highlighting works ranging from the English Pastoralism of Rebecca Clarke’s duo for clarinet and viola to the joyful eclecticism of Karim Al-Zand’s Stomping Grounds, which draws its inspiration from such diverse sources as Baroque ground bass, music of the African “thumb piano,” and “stop time” jazz, this program delivers a generous helping of assorted delights.
