The Chelsea Symphony | March 3 and 4 | Music About Travel

Comment Off 71 Views
The concerts feature music about travel. Conductor Nell Flanders opens this series on Friday with Ernest Chausson’s Poème, a work written while on holiday in Italy, performed by violinist Bryn Digney and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, featuring Nelly Rocha. Saturday features Thomas Purcell in Vivian Fung’s Violin Concerto No. 1, which draws inspiration from the composer’s experience preparing for a gamelan tour in Bali. Both evenings conclude with Johannes Brahms’s sunlit Symphony No. 2, a work he famously wrote while vacationing in southern Austria.
