Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (CLASSICAL) Mandolin and accordion duo: Stars Aligned

Live Music

November 3, 2018

Weis Center for the Performing Arts

 

One of the world’s foremost chamber orchestras, Orpheus has recorded 71 albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures, and has commissioned and premiered 48 original works. The members of Orpheus rotate musical leadership roles for each work. In Stars Aligned, Orpheus welcomes two innovative artists who are reinventing their time-honored instruments: Latvia’s Ksenija Sidorova on the accordion and Israel’s Avi Avital on the mandolin. From a novel rendition of Bach to a world premiere by Golden Globe, Grammy Award and Emmy-nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch, these trailblazing soloists showcase their enormous sonic spectrum. At the Weis Center, they will perform Waxman’s “Sinfonietta for Strings and Timpani;” Rota’s “Canzona;” Bach’s “Double Concerto for Mandolin and Accordion in C Minor” (arr. Paul Chihara); Wallfisch’s “Concerto for Mandolin and Accordion” (commissioned by Orpheus) and Rozsa’s “Hungarian Serenade, Op. 25.”

Saturday, Nov. 3, 7:30 p.m., Weis Center Tickets: 570-577-1000 or Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice
