Pops Concert Brings Venezuela, Vienna And Modern Classical Music To Roger Williams Park

A new piece of classical music gets its American premiere Friday at the Rhode Island Philharmonic pops concert in Roger Williams Park. Composer Paul Desenne wrote the piece as a new take on a traditional Viennese polka.


Desenne spoke with Rhode Island Public Radio’s John Bender about where he found inspiration for the piece and its unusual name, "Tritsch Tratsch Triqui Traqui.”

 

You can hear all of Paul Desenne’s “Tritsch Tratsch Triqui Traqui” at its American premiere Friday night at the Rhode Island Philharmonic pops concert in Roger Williams Park.

And you can listen to the full concert live on Rhode Island Public Radio starting at 7 PM.
