La Jolla Symphony & Chorus: Rossini. Price. Bartok.

November 2 @ 7:30 pm - November 3 @ 7:30 pm

November 2-3, 2019

Steven Schick, conducts

Gioachino Rossini Overture to William Tell
Florence Price Violin Concerto No. 1
Béla Bartók 
Concerto for Orchestra

Soloist: Peter Clarke, violin

Our 65th season opens with some very familiar music–Rossini’s William Tell Overture–and some very unfamiliar music: co-concertmaster Peter Clarke is soloist in the First Violin Concerto of Florence Price, a prolific African-American composer from the 1930-50s, whose Second Violin Concerto was one of the highlights of last season. The concert concludes with Bartók’s great Concerto for Orchestra. Written by a frail composer during the depths of the Second World War, it is a ringing statement of faith in life–and a supreme test for every orchestra that performs it.
