Rossini, Price, Bartók - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

11/20/2019; 81 minutes

Steven Schick conducts the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus in their first concert of the 2019/2020 season combines the popular and the unfamiliar. First up is Giachino Rossini's "Overture to William Tell," a perennial concert favorite with deep roots in pop culture. Next is Florence Price's "Violin Concerto No. 2," a lyrical piece forgotten for seventy years until its chance rediscovery in 2009. The concert concludes with Béla Bartók's dazzling "Concerto for Orchestra," one of that composer's most popular and accessible works. Recorded on 11/03/2019. (#34846)
