Souvenirs

October 14, 2017   Saturday, 8:00pm

 

Rio Sena                                              A. Piazzolla

Simple Symphony                              B. Britten

Souvenir de Florence                          P. Tchaikovsky

 

An anniversary is a time to celebrate memories of wonderful moments and events. So it only makes sense to start Santa Cecilia Orchestra’s 25th anniversary season with a dazzling collection of musical remembrances of things past, cherished and beloved. Rio Sena is Astor Piazzolla’s homage to the River Seine, a remembrance of his time in Paris. Simple Symphony is dedicated to Britten’s childhood viola teacher. The piece is based on eight themes that Britten wrote during his childhood and for which he had a particular fondness. The concert comes to a thrilling close with Tchaikovsky’s exhilarating Souvenir de Florence, his musical postcard from an Italian summer holiday, filled with gorgeous melodies and bursting energy.

Get ready for a duel! It’s violin vs viola and the winner is . . . the AUDIENCE!!

 

This superb concert features a double dose of talent: Santa Cecilia Orchestra Concertmaster Yi-Huan Zhao performs on violin beside a guest violist. Enjoy the magnificent display of talent from this gifted duo as they perform Halvorsen’s beautiful Passacaglia on an original theme by Handel. In Halvorsen’s composition, Handel’s theme blossoms into a number of separate variations, some lyrical and expressive, others explosively virtuosic. The evening also includes duets composed by Mozart, Shcherbokov’s Kanzone for two violins, and Divertimento by Austrian composer Ernst Toch for violin and viola.
