Are you ready for some Big Fiddle?
Episode 5 of Music Makes a City Now has just launched. We're excited to present the premiere of fiddler and composer Jeremy Kittel's Big Fiddle — a folk/classical combo that Teddy compares to the work of past composers who drew from the popular music of their day.
The episode also features Kentucky crossover cellist Ben Sollee, who rehearses and performs the piece with Jeremy Kittel on violin, Teddy and the Louisville Orchestra.
“This piece goes back to two loves of mine: fiddling, which is basically groove music...combined with my love of orchestral music. The sound of an orchestra, there’s just nothing like it.”
Jeremy Kittel, composer and violinist
“The rhythm is not just precise. It's expressive. Because it's solid. It's solid. It means something.”
Teddy Abrams, Music Director, The Louisville Orchestra
