Caroline Shaw: By and By
Caroline Shaw: Valencia
Mozart: String Quintet in C Major, K. 515

Simplicity and complexity are at play in this casual concert featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw and members of the North Carolina Symphony.

The underlying intricacy of the orange inspired Shaw’s string quartet, Valencia. Simplicity at the surface similarly conceals the depth of invention in Mozart’s String Quintet No. 3—often considered his greatest work of chamber music. Shaw’s By and By, for voice and string quartet, takes the lyrics of some of her favorite old bluegrass and gospel songs and transforms them into something more contemplative, enveloping the words with dark, gentle string textures.

“There is something exquisite about the construction of an ordinary orange. It is a thing of nature so simple, yet so complex and extraordinary.” –Caroline Shaw, composer
