Chicago Sinfonietta's 34th season begins with a dynamic concert drawing on the deep connections of community through works grounded in folk music. The rhythmic spontaneity and seductive expression of Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 opens the concert, followed by violinist Tessa Lark's compelling energy in Michael Torke's SKY, a fusion inspired by Irish reel and American bluegrass. The evening closes with American composer William Dawson's Negro Folk Symphony, a Chicago Sinfonietta signature piece informed by traditional spirituals. Approximately 70 mins, no intermission
