Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
Vadim Gluzman, violin
Open Rehearsal / 6:30–7:00
Pre-concert Talk / 7:00–7:30
Join us before the show for a conversation with Vadim Gluzman and Ilan Peleg, Lafayette Professor of Government and Law, in Room 108
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. Mendelssohn’s symphonic recollections of Scotland fill the concert hall with splashes of local color and long-lost folk melodies, while composer Michael Hersch reflects on sketches by artist Kevin Tuttle as he processes the impacts of physical illness and mortality.
Program: Mendelssohn / Symphony No. 3, Op. 56 “Scottish” // Hersch / End Stages (Premiere) // Tchaikovsky / Violin Concerto, Op. 35
The H. Ellis Finger Concert.
This performance is made possible, in part, by Patron Sponsors Dr. Ralph Slaght and Dr. Susan Bauman ’74.
