Description:

Simone Porter, Violin. You may need a seatbelt for this journey into the stratosphere! Pärt’s other-worldly Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten (1977) begins with the tolling of a single bell that leads you on a sensory journey, ending with a chord of such breadth and intensity that it alters your breathing and you feel your body being pressed into the ground as you decompress back to earth. The simple style of this work was influenced by Pärt’s mystical experiences with chant music. Mozart also demonstrates his mastery of simplicity in his Symphony No. 41. The main theme of the 4th movement consists of only 4 notes which Mozart skillfully marries with other motifs to create a grand fugato at the end. Sheer genius! Composed 2010 by Argentine composer Golijov, Sidereus was written to commemorate Galileo and it definitely evokes celestial, galactic feelings with its rich brass and the momentum of the underlying rhythmic sections. In the 1940s, composer Erich Korngold became the star among Hollywood film composers. You will be smitten by the rapturous melodies in his Violin Concerto, many of which were taken from film scores. Never has a violin sounded sweeter. We are hoping you leave with feelings of love in your heart – Hollywood style!
