THE BIRTH OF VENUS
ECHO Chamber Orchestra is excited to announce the first concert of their 2018/2019 season entitled The Birth of Venus. The program will feature three programatic works with inspiration varying from art to people, and to the journey of ones self. Mozarts Symphony No. 41 in C major, gained inspiration from the latter. Mozart's final symphony was given the name "Jupiter" in the 19th century and it is a stunning work of creativity, beauty and intelligence. It has been called the grandfather of all C major symphonies, crafted of intricately worked themes, some towering in grandeur and others lyrically beautiful.
Carl Maria Von Webers Concertino in E flat Major was composed in 1811 for his friend and clarinetist, Heinrich Baermann. Our soloist Dan Ferreira first performed this piece nearly 15 years ago and is excited to share his new found interpretation full of bravura, passion, and brilliance after recently attending a chamber music intensive retreat in New York.
Ottorino Respighi, known for larger orchestrated works, composed Botticelli Triptych for a smaller chamber orchestra. Not to worry, the piece does not lose any of the Respighi charm and the three Sandro Botticelli paintings Respighi used for inspiration can be both vividly seen and heard.
A complimentary wine reception with musicians will be held immediately following the performance. www.echorchestra.com
