Coming on the heels of the PDX Jazz Festival, March Music Moderne provides a wonderful modernist counterpoint to its more august cousin. The schedule for the fourth annual festival, organized by local musician and composer Bob Priest, looks to be a stunning one, including this rare Portland appearance by Quatuor Ébène. The French string quartet will perform a daring and somewhat brooding 1929 work from Bartók that was inspired by the folk music of the composer's native Hungary, and whose punchy stabs of melody influenced Bernard Herrmann's score for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.
