Eclectic Series: “INFLUENCE” / Tallā Rouge Viola Duo طلای سرخ
April 7 at 7:00 pm
In Influence, Tallā Rouge brings the American sound to the classical concert stage through an exploration of past and present influences! Inspired by their Cajun and Persian heritages, this kaleidoscope of genres explores a melting-pot of musical expression, weaving together a collective story of who we are and how we got there. From grief to playfulness, these Jazz, Fiddle, Classical, and West-Asian inspired works break free of tradition leaving space for Tallā Rouge to boldly challenge the viola duo genre in this exciting 60 minute program of original arrangements.

Tallā Rouge, meaning ‘The Red-Gold’ in Farsi and French, was established by the fiery Persian-American & Cajun-American violists, Aria Cheregosha & Lauren Spaulding. Tallā Rouge was formed at The Juilliard School in 2020 under the mentorship of Roger Tapping & Karoly Schranz of the Takács Quartet, and the ensemble made their debut virtually with “Music for Food” under the direction of violist Kim Kashkashian. Recognized internationally for their emotional performances, Tallā Rouge has been named NOLA ChamberFest’s “Emerging Artists” of the year (2022-2023) by the Catalyst Quartet, has been invited to work with soloist Nobuko Imai, has been awarded first-prize winner in the Frances Walton Competition, and has been named a top prize winner in the International Anton Rubinstein Chamber Music Competition (2022-2023). Tallā Rouge will be a featured ensemble on the 2023 inaugural American Viola Society album and will make their Carnegie Hall debut in June of 2023.
