Vivaldi: Concerto for 4 violins, RV 580
Marcello: Oboe Concerto in C minor
Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks
Hindemith: Concert Music for Strings & Brass
Tchaikovsky: Francesca da Rimini
The ETSO is deconstructed for a concert that explores the many configurations of the orchestra. Four of the orchestra’s core violinists, led by concertmaster Mark Miller, are featured in a concerto by Antonio Vivaldi and Principal Oboist Sharon Lacey performs Marcello’s Oboe Concerto in C minor. The evening also features Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, originally conceived for winds, brass and percussion, as well as Paul Hindemith’s singular Concert Music for Strings and Brass. The evening concludes with the full force of the ETSO performing Tchaikovsky’s diabolically challenging Francesca da Rimini.
