Spring String Spectacular
March 5, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
Howard Frazin: Viola Concerto (Kim Kashkashian, World Premiere)
Tchaikovsky: Serenade for Strings
This “Spring String Spectacular” epitomizes the orchestra’s commitment to the “Three B’s & Beyond.” Bach’s glorious Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 opens the concert and provides a dazzling showcase of the talents of ten virtuoso members of the orchestra. Internationally-renowned violist Kim Kashkashian joins BB&B for the world premiere of a new work written expressly for her talents, Howard Frazin’s neo-romantic Viola Concerto. The program’s centerpiece is Tchaikovsky’s masterful Serenade for Strings, which displays the composer’s deep admiration for the music of Bach and Mozart.
