5-21-16 Music In Maryland Baltimore Chamber Orchestra/Strings On Fire

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | Comments Off on 5-21-16 Music In Maryland Baltimore Chamber Orchestra/Strings On Fire

This week we are broadcasting the concert listed below!  It was a really fun program to see live and it’s nice to give these fine performances a second life on the radio.


January 17, 2016

Madeline Adkins, violin
Victoria Chiang, viola
Chiara Dieguez, viola
Markand Thakar, conductor
Sunday, January 17, 2016, 3:00 p.m.

BACH Brandenburg Concerto No. 6, BWV 1051
BACH Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor
SARASATE Introduction and Tarantella
ELGAR Serenade
SHOSTAKOVICH Chamber Symphony

Dmitri Shostakovich published his intense and passionate String Quartet no. 8, with the dedication “to the memory of the victims of fascism and war.” It is a fitting tag for this most popular work, performed here in the arrangement for string orchestra. The concert opens with music of JS Bach; first the sixth of his immortal Brandenburg Concertos, this one for two viola soloists featuring BCO’s new principal violist Chiara Dieguez and Peabody viola faculty member Victoria Chiang. Then we’ll hear the A-Minor Violin Concerto performed by our own beloved concertmaster, Madeline Adkins, who will also thrill us with a virtuoso showpiece by the Spanish composer Pablo de Sarasate. The profoundly peaceful Serenade for string orchestra by the British Sir Edward Elgar rounds out the program.

To fill we used the Rachmaninov Cello Sonata newly recorded by Dariusz Skoraczewski and Michael Sheppard.
