April 2023 Concert
This concert will open with a performance of ‘In Good King Charles's Golden Days — A Symphonic Overture’ by contemporary American composer, Linda Robbins Coleman. A reviewer at the premiere of this piece in 1996 said ‘The piece is a delicious blend of crisp colors and lovely lyricism. The piece is as vivacious as its composer.’ The most popular concerto in the piano repertoire, the First Concerto of Peter Tchaikovsky, will provide the long-planned ESO debut of the Armenian-American virtuoso Kariné Poghosyan. Felix Mendelssohn’s music was banned by the Nazis due to his Jewish birth, but he actually converted to the Lutheran faith at age seven. His “Reformation” Symphony honors Martin Luther and culminates in a setting of “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.”
