Sibelius: Violin Concerto Performed by Angel Valchinov
Brahms: Symphony No. 3
We open the season with two majestic and beloved works appearing for the first time on the “menu.”
CHSO’s brilliant Concertmaster, Angel Valchinov performs as soloist in the vulnerable and unspeakably beautiful Sibelius Violin Concerto. The piece illustrates that not only do darkness and beauty coexist, they enhance each other.
Johannes Brahms “heroic” Third Symphony is a brave “monster” of a work with quickly changing character and huge sweeping melodies. The third movement is one you’ll find familiar — it’s been used on television and film — even Frank Sinatra “borrowed” the tune for his song “Take My Love.”
