“This is Italy! And I am loving it.” - Felix Mendelssohn in a letter to his family.

Aram Demirjian, conductor

Sean Claire, violin

Andy Bryenton, cello

 

This program showcases the sounds of Italy, beginning with the Overture to The Italian Girl In Algiers by composer Gioachino Rossini. The Chamber Classics series continues to promote Knoxville collaboration with solos by KSO violinist Sean Claire and KSO’s Principal Cellist, Andy Bryenton, in Italian composer Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin and Cello. Contemporary composer Anna Clyne’s Within Her Arms calls for a fifteen player string orchestra that is reminiscent of the concerto grosso that you would find in Vivaldi’s time. The program concludes with Mendelssohn’s vivid depiction of an unforgettable vacation in his Symphony No. 4 (“Italian”) and takes the audience on the journey there and back.
