From Impatience to Romance

May 23: re•NEW•(all), 3 p.m. Scottsdale Presbyterian Church
The MusicaNova Chamber Players continue the orchestra’s contemplation on the times in which we live with a program that includes two world premieres. Concertmaster Christiano Rodrigues,
in his final performance before taking a faculty position at Washington State University, premieres Ben Robichaux’s Three Reflections on Impatience for unaccompanied violin, before
leading the group in Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas No. 4, Mendelssohn's Concerto for Piano and Violin in D minor and a new piece by ASU’s Rodney Rogers, Concerto for Violin and String
Orchestra. The concert concludes with Christiano and his wife, Karen Nguyen, playing Amy Beach’s Romance as a loving embrace and warm farewell.
