Event Description

Tickets Sunday, February 4, 2018 - 2:30pm please call 865-291-3310 Share Bach Concerto for Two Violins This energetic Chamber Classics performance led by Music Director Aram Demirjian includes the theatrical music of Schnittke, searing music of Golijov, and abnormally assertive Bach’s Concerto for 2 Violins, performed by KSO principal second violin Edward Pulgar and the KSO's new Concertmaster, to be named in the spring of 2017. This all-string program showcases the full range capabilities of the Chamber Orchestra. While two pieces feature a double-violin solo by Bach, this program also uses a tongue-in-cheek style of string players combating each other with their instruments while playing. The program concludes with Jennifer Higdon’s “String” and Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony, the latter of which is an edgier piece than normally heard on the classical stage.
