“Farrenc’s symphony is as impressively energetic and structurally satisfying as any of Mendelssohn’s or Schumann’s symphonies.” --Tom Service, of London’s Guardian on Louise Farrenc’s Symphony No. 3 being named among the 50 greatest symphonies of all time.

Aram Demirjian, conductor

Gordon Tsai, violin



Darker America

Violin Concerto No. 2

Symphony No. 3


Why You Will Love This Program:

  • Hidden Gems: Louise Farrenc is a 19th century French composer whose music is finally broadly beginning to get its due in recent years.
  • The elegant, thoughtful solo playing of KSO Associate Concertmaster Gordon Tsai.
  • Darker America was one of William Grant Still’s earliest concert works to incorporate the blues. He described the piece as, “representative of the American Negro, and suggests triumph over sorrows through fervent prayer.”


Musical Tasting Menu:

  • Get to know Louise Farrenc with the first movement of her Symphony No. 3 HERE.
  • Hear why Darker America was one of William Grant Still’s earliest orchestral successes HERE.
