LOS ANGELES CHAMBER ORCHESTRA: MASTERWORKS FOR STRING ORCHESTRA

Music

May 06

7:30 PM
Immerse yourself in the majesty of the string orchestra in this program of rich and varied compositions curated by LACO Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer. Spanning more than 800 years, the works include 12th century German Saint Hildegard Von Bingen’s “O Virtus Sapientiae”; Britten’s lovely Simple Symphony, rife with sophisticated orchestration; the compact but lively 10th Symphony in B Minor written by a teenaged Mendelssohn; Hindemith’s compelling Five Pieces for Strings; and Greig’s popular Holberg Suite, which sits at the intersection of baroque-style dance and Nordic melodic harmonies and treatments.
