Orpheus Chamber Orchestra with Jan Vogler, Cello and Mira Wang, Violin

October 15, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

MENDELSSOHN: OVERTURE TO A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

WOLFGANG RIHM: DUO CONCERTO (PREMIERE)

SCHUMANN: SYMPHONY NO. 2 IN C MAJOR, OP. 61

Celebrating German romanticism, Orpheus opens the season with Mendelssohn’s effervescent Overture, inspired by Shakespeare’s fanciful tale. The highly anticipated premiere by Wolfgang Rihm follows, written especially for Orpheus and these award-winning soloists. The New York Times praises Vogler’s “lyrical intuition” and Wang’s “complete ease, grace, and sunny tone.” A recent Grawemeyer Award-winner, Rihm is one of the most “engaging and profound composers writing music today” (The Guardian). Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 is surprisingly uplifting, reflecting his triumph over a bout of depression.
