This concert features Hussite Fantasy, a work for string quartet, commissioned in 2008 for the 150th Anniversary of the (historically Czech) First Presbyterian Church near Ely, Iowa. Based on an early 15th-century hymn tune attributed to John Zizka (1419), Hussite Fantasy includes a fantasy on the theme as well as two traditional Czech dances based on the theme (a Waltz and a Furiant). Completing the program are Czech folk songs and dances as well as Dvorak’s Quartet No. 5 in F minor. Composer and violinist Philip Wharton and violist Karin Addis join the core ensemble. Photo by Amy Hunzelman.

This project is supported, in part, by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
