Freisinger Chamber Orchestra
September 25, 2010
Excellent chamber orchestra of mostly graduate music students from local music schools, featuring talented composers and soloists.
Haydn: Symphony No. 8, "Le soir," one of the great early symphonies.
Igor Tkachenko: World Premiere of "Concerto alla Breve," written just for the FCO. A virtuoso tour de force, full of character and excitement!
Bizet (Habanera from Carmen), Gounod (Que fais tu from Faust), Massenet (Va! Laisse couler mes larmes from Werther), and Saint Saens (Amour, viens aider ma faiblesse from Samson et Dalila): French Operatic Arias sung by Mezzo Soprano Christina Calamaio with the conductor accompanying at the piano.
Mozart: Piano Concerto in F, K459, No. 19 with soloist Natalie Erlich.
The First Church in Boston is a six-minute walk from the Green Line's Arlington subway station, at 66 Marlborough St. and the corner of Berkeley St.
