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. 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. In 1829, Mendelssohn made his first trip to London for the première of his own Symphony No. 1, which he played five years earlier at his sister’s birthday party.
