MCO: Bach, Eötvös, Arensky, Mozart, Mendelssohn & Perkinson
Fri 3 March @ 19:30 - 21:30$45 – $55
For her first orchestral concert as MCO’s artistic director, Sophie Rowell invites you to revel in the power and possibilities of the string orchestra.
They start with the majesty and eloquence of Bach — a single strand of sound that unfolds into a miniature universe. And they end with Sophie as soloist, in the dazzling youthful Mendelssohn Concerto in D minor.
In between, they weave together through time and place, tracing rich connections on three continents in four centuries. Theythread together Melody Eötvös’ Meraki, inspired by a Greek word meaning to perform with soul, creativity and love; a musical firework by American genius Coleridge Perkinson; a dash of theatrical Mozart; and a love letter to Tchaikovsky.
