Contrasts for Strings: Barber, Farina, Cohen

March 5 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

A fascinating program takes the audience on a journey of discovery, demonstrating the versatility of the string orchestra. See how the conservative Purcell and the rules-breaker Farina take entirely different approaches. Marvel at how Barber and Andriessen start with the same mood and go in opposite directions. Hear how Telemann, Grieg and Graham Cohen bring the sounds of traditional cultures to a classical string orchestra with fascinating results.

  • Barber: Adagio for Strings
  • Andriessen: Symphony for Open Strings (excerpt)
  • Purcell: Chaconne in G minor
  • Farina: Capriccio Stravagante
  • Telemann: Mezzetin En Turc
  • Grieg: Norwegian Melody
  • Cohen: Gamelan

This concert is supported in part by grants from Hannah Selznick, the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
