“This is not your grandfather’s chamber music.” Spark is a quintet that plays at folk festivals, jazz clubs and the great concert halls of the world in Amsterdam, London, Shanghai, Berlin and Barcelona. The five young artists take over the stage with as many as 40 different instruments, from the 10-inch sopranino recorder to the 7-foot tall sub-bass. Their diverse program ranges from Handel and Bach to the percussive rhythms of Kenji Bunch, a 21st century composer. Spark combines the virtuosity and precision of a classical chamber music ensemble with the power and grit of a folk band.
