 Grammy Award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra featuring violinist Vadim Gluzman
Sunday, January 22, 2017

For Immediate Release -  September,  2016

Worcester - Orpheus Chamber Orchestra returns for this Music Worcester season to perform in Mechanics Hall with their first ever rendition of Tchaikovsky's sweeping Violin Concerto, with soloist Vadim Gluzman.  Ukrainian-born Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman performs on the very same 1690 Stradivarius for which the Tchaikovsky concerto was composed.  Scenes from Chabrier's "picturesque pieces" and Mendelssohn's symphonic recollections of Scotland will fill the concert hall with splashes of local color and long lost folk melodies.  For another American Notes commission, composer Michael Hersch reflects on sketches by artist Kevin Tuttle as he processes the impacts of physical illness and mortality in his tone poem entitled End Stages.

Orpheus Chamber Orchestra returns to Mechanics Hall to deliver their first-ever rendition of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping Violin Concerto. When the Ukrainian-born Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman appeared with Orpheus in 2011, The New York Times praised a performance that “balanced thoughtfulness and visceral power.” Gluzman will be performing on the very same 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivarius for which the Tchaikovsky concerto was composed. Scenes from Chabrier’s “picturesque pieces” and Mendelssohn’s symphonic recollections of Scotland fill the concert hall with splashes of local color and long lost folk melodies. For another American Notes commission, composer Michael Hersch reflects on sketches by artist Kevin Tuttle as he processes the impacts of physical illness and mortality in his tone poem entitled End Stages. - See more at: http://www.musicworcester.org/MW/events/schedule-and-tickets/orpheus/#.dpuf
