Kindred Spirits Orchestra: Passion and Drama (Principal 2nd Violin, Soloist)
Fervorous melodies of the Roma people captivate through violin pyrotechnics in Pablo de Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen. Lost during the plight of the Russian Revolution, Prokofiev reconstructed by memory his Piano Concert No. 2, adding ten years of musical maturity and sophisticated compositional skill in this brilliant and evocative work. Set to Lord Byron’s touchstone of Romantic literature, Manfred Symphony by Tchaikovsky is an impassioned score recounting the tale of a guilt-ridden protagonist in pursuit of death.
