“That this score contains the best of me I do not doubt,” Frank Bridge wrote in a letter to his patron Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge of his 3rd String Quartet.

He was not wrong, as this quartet undoubtedly represents Bridge coming into his style and maturity as a composer, quickly becoming one of his most celebrated pieces. Catch it in its entirety performed by the Maggini Quartet, 11 to noon on KUAF.

Tonight's Artosphere Festival Orchestra concert includes a North American debut performance along with Beethoven's 3rd and his "Creatures of Prometheus" Overture. Daniel Schnyder's riveting "Impetus," a concerto for string quartet and orchestra will bring the Dover Quartet front and center in this electrifying piece.

Pop-up concerts by Artosphere Festival Orchestra (AFO) musicians have become an integral part of their time in Northwest Arkansas. 

"It's great to bring these smaller versions of our stage to people who maybe haven't experienced that," explains cellist Paul Miahky. Tonight they overtake downtown Bentonville for the "AFO Food & Music Night" beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the Bentonville Square.

The musicians of Artosphere Festival Orchestra stay quite busy in their short stint in the Arkansas Ozarks and that includes taking classical music outside the concert hall.

"It's the big monster," says pianist Benedetto Lupo when describing Rachmaninov's explosive third piano concerto.
