The program includes composers from Spain, Brazil, France and Argentina, and also features a composition by each performer.
Hartka wrote "Bone Dust Star Dust" after improvising with her cello on a remote Mayan pyramid.
The work uses scales found in ancient mayan flutes as well as sounds of her celtic ancestors.
Lezcano's Key West Suite draws from a wide range of styles from Bolero and Bach.


Duo Mondo From Samba to Tango, in Cultural Cross Currents Duo Mundo will be exploring music that has resulted from the intersection of cultures and styles. Hartka grew up with Ecuadorian neighbors dancing to traditional Andean panpipes and drums, which Inspired a life long interest in building bridges between cultures through music. Cuban American Jose Lezcano has been writing and exploring hybridized music for decades in performance and in his compositions. The pair have been playing together since 2014, connecting across cultures in Cuba at the international Cello Festival of Havana and with Mayan musicians in Yucatan Mexico.
Duo Mundo recorded their first album in 2017 which was praised by American Record Guide: "Hartka and Lezcano play off against each other in a subtle but effective unity of rubato relationships that brings off the sonatas with a personality that catches the ears and holds them" (D. Moore, American Record Guide).


There will be a meet the artists reception immediately after the concert
