World-renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine headlines program that features concerto by Panamanian-born composer and Dayton resident
On Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8, 2008 at 8 pm in the Schuster Center, Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director Neal Gittleman will present Compass Points, a program of music by four composers from four different parts of the world.
It’s one of the widest-ranging programs ever heard, as the DPO presents the music of composers who hail from France, Panama, Finland, and Spain! Berlioz brings us sparkling orchestral color and rhythm in Roman Carnival Overture; Cordero, a deeply expressionistic work, Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, drawn in part from his Latin background; Sibelius, the Symphony No. 7, a symphonic fantasia of rarified unity; Sarasate, the Carmen Fantasy, a smoky, passionate homage to Bizet’s Carmen. Soloist Rachel Barton Pine takes on Cordero and Sarasate with equal aplomb. The compass stops right here in the Miami Valley; composer Roque Cordero is a Dayton resident!
Friday’s concert is the Olive W. Kettering Memorial Concert.
On both concert evenings at 7 pm in the Mead Theatre, Music Director Neal Gittleman and composer Roque Cordero will conduct a Take Note discussion.
On Saturday, March 8, from 7 pm to 7:45 pm on the DP&L Stage in the Wintergarden, the Oakwood High School Blackbird String Quartet – Nan Watson, Director – will perform.
Tickets: $10.50 – $59.00
