Concerto for String Quartet and Banjo

Béla Fleck is a banjo player in the middle of a symphony. While that might be a surprising picture, it's just the image he has been campaigning for since childhood when he took on the banjo as a cause.

Tonight, Clowes Memorial Hall is hosting Fleck and string quartet Brooklyn Rider as they perform "Night Flight Over Water," a Fleck piece commissioned by Clowes just for their 50th anniversary. This video shows just what kind of unique depth a banjo can add to a string concerto.
