String trio will perform in Red Bluff
The Tehama Concert Series is bringing the International String Trio to the State Theatre in Red Bluff on Monday.
The International String Trio has honed an expansive repertoire embracing nearly a dozen styles from far-flung lands.
Employing their instruments as passports, the adventurous triumvirate unlocks the doors to a global array of tunes and a range of styles including Gypsy swing, old-time Appalachian laments, traditional Irish reels, celebratory klezmer, passionate tango, graceful French musette, and burning bluegrass.
While steeped in jazz, they play intricately arranged music that leaves room for improvisation without focusing on it.
The Boston combo, featuring Russian-born guitarist Slava Tolstoy, British violinist Ben Powell and Japanese acoustic bassist Ippei Ichimaru, seamlessly renders a treasure trove of melodies with buoyant energy, intimate acoustic dynamics, stylistically informed phrasing, and loving attention to detail.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is free to Tehama Concert Series members. Tickets will be sold at the door for $20 and $10 for students under 25. For more information, call 727-8727.
