Henry Purcell, Chaconne in G minor

A fascinating program takes the audience on a journey of discovery, demonstrating the versatility of the string orchestra. Experience how the conservative Purcell and the rule-breaking Farina take entirely different approaches. Marvel at how Barber and Andriessen can start with the same mood and go in diametrically opposite directions. Hear how Telemann, Grieg and Cohen bring the sounds of traditional cultures to a classical string orchestra with fascinating results.
This concert is supported in part by grants from Hannah Selznick, the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
