Johannes Brahms Tragic Overture, op. 81
Anton Arensky Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, op. 71
Florence Price Piano Concerto in One Movement
Felix Mendelssohn Symphony No. 5 in D Major, op. 107 “Reformation”
The Chamber Orchestra’s season ends with the perfect blend of familiar repertoire and forgotten gems. The passionate Romantic language of Tchaikovsky speaks through Arensky’s Variations, while the overlooked voice of pioneering African-American composer Florence Price comes to life in an astonishing performance of her Piano Concerto in One Movement by special guest Karen Walwyn, piano. A rare performance of Brahms’ Tragic Overture is a “must hear,” along with Mendelssohn’s “Reformation” Symphony in a performance with so much energy and drive that you might just entirely rethink the piece!
