Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Perform at Carnegie Hall March 19
Orpheus Chamber Orchestra presents its final Signature Series concert of the season in Stern Auditorium Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, March 19, at 7:00 p.m. featuring violinist Pinchas Zukerman as soloist. The concert continues the orchestra's season-long focus on musical influence and adaptation.
The program includes J.C. Bach's Symphony in G minor, Op. 6 No. 6; Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G Major, K. 216 and Beethoven's Romance for Violin and Orchestra No. 1 in G Major, Op. 40, both with Mr. Zukerman; the New York premiere of American composer Harold Meltzer's Vision Machine, an Orpheus commission; and Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin.
In a recent interview, Artistic Director and violist Dov Scheindlin concluded of Zukerman that there was were few that could command Mozart as he could:
"Mozart's Third Violin Concerto is a piece with which Pinchas Zukerman is deeply associated; he's recorded all the Mozart Violin Concertos.
"The piece pairs nicely with Johann Christian Bach's symphony and also shows off Pinchas' musicianship and abilities. The Violin Concerto is followed by Beethoven's Romance; a very gentle Beethoven -- not the stormy, angry Beethoven, but more reflective and in line with the Mozart piece that precedes it."
The performance, which marks Mr. Zukerman's highly-anticipated Orpheus debut, will be his only New York orchestral appearance this season.
Mr. Zukerman and Orpheus are scheduled to performs the same program on tour this spring, however, with concerts taking place at the Kauffman Center in Kansas City on Friday, March 18, at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto on Sunday, March 20 and at Michigan State University's Wharton Center for Performing Arts in East Lansing on Monday, March 21.
Tickets for the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Pinchas Zukerman March 19, performance at Carnegie Hall are priced between $14.50 and $110.
