The Mighty Third Rail & Publiquartet


Violinist Curtis Stewart is the linchpin when hip-hop meets high modernism in “Changing Night,” a collaboration of The Mighty Third Rail Band – a trio consisting of double bass, violin, and rapper – with string ensemble Publiquartet. A contemporary retelling of the Garden of Eden myth, the piece revolves around the quartet’s performance of Györgi Lygeti’s String Quartet No. 1 (Métamorphoses Nocturnes), and ends with a two-group mashup.
