First Program in Demirjian Chamber Series

DPO Cellist Makes Solo Debut

Inspired by the gilded-age intimacy of the Victoria Theater, the Demirjian Chamber Orchestra Series provides the Dayton Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra with an opportunity to show off musical works that are specially written to sound their best in smaller settings. On Friday, September 23 – at two separate performances (10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.) – DPO Music Director Neal Gittleman will conduct classical music that ranges from the baroque to the modern and covers the length and breadth of Europe.

Igor Stravinksy’s Suites for Small Orchestra leads off and finds the modern, Russian composer experimenting with a wide variety of dance patterns. Next – in her concert solo debut – DPO Principal Cellist Andra Lunde Padrichelli performs Baroque Italian composer Luigi Boccherini’s Cello Concerto in B-flat Major, G. 482. Then, the orchestra performs Czech composer Antonin Dvorák’s Silent Woods. Capping off the program, Neal Gittleman leads the DPCO in a performance of French composer Darius Milhaud’s 1922 work, La Création du Monde, which features Jazz Age influences.

The Demirjian Chamber Orchestra Series concerts are casual and easygoing, as witnessed by the fact that DPO concert partners provide refreshments before each performance. For the 10:00 a.m. performance, concert partners Boston Stoker and Mill Ridge Village will provide complimentary coffee and doughnuts, and – for the 6:30 p.m. performance – concert partner Boston’s Bistro at the Gypsy will provide complimentary pizza!
