Spring Concert II 2018 (5/20/2018)

 

We are thrilled to welcome back violinist David Niwa, associate concertmaster of the Columbus Symphony. When last “the man with the silver tone” was with us, he thrilled us with his performance of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto. This time he brings us the music of the Dean of the Franco-Belgian violin school, Henri Vieuxtemps. Although not heard as often as some concerti in the repertoire, once you discover the gem that is Vieuxtemps 5th violin concerto, you’ll understand why Heifetz insisted it should be heard far more often. Couple this with Franck’s wondrous, mysterious and always magnificent Symphony in d minor, and you’ve got an evening of music making not to be missed! 

Winter Concert II 2018 (3/25/2018)

 

An incomparable pianist and an incomparable concerto. Caroline Hong, pianist with the Columbus Symphony, joins the orchestra in one of the most loved, dazzling and demanding concertos in the repertoire, Tchaikovski's Piano Concert # 1 in b flat minor. An audience favorite since its premiere in 1875 (the audience in Boston demanded a repeat of the third movement!)- prepare to be thrilled. Our all Tchaikovski evening also includes "Mozartiana," the master's delightful orchestra suite written in celebration the 100th anniversary of Mozart's opera "Don Giovanni."

Winter Concert I 2018 (1/21/2018)

 

A hale and hearty WELCOME BACK to two of the finest musicians in Central Ohio- or anywhere else on the planet- violinist Arianne Sletner and cellist Luis Biava. Both have appeared as soloists with the orchestra before, but for only the second time in their illustrious careers, they will take the stage together in Brahms Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra. This was one of the last and best pieces penned by the master from Budapest, and we are in for an evening of magical music making!

Fall Concert 2017 (10/29/2017)

 

Saxophone quartet, mezzo soprano and orchestra isn't a  combination found together every day of the week, but in the hands of Estonian composer Tonu Korvits we take an amazing musical journey in his 2011 piece "New Moon." Romantic, mysterious, modern, beautiful music explores the saxophone family well beyond the jazz hall. Rounding out the program is Mendelssohn's scintillating Symphony # 3, th"Scottish." In his own lifetime, (and beyond!) Mendelssohn was renowned in the British Isles. This work pays homage to a place he called his "second home."
