ProArte Chamber Orchestra Concert: Jewels and Gems
January 12 @ 8:00 pm
Guest Conductor Paul Polivnick leads a program of brilliant German music from the early Romantic era. The concert opens with the rousing Overture in C by Fanny Mendelssohn, older sister of Felix. Violinist Steven Copes, Concertmaster of the critically acclaimed Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, joins Pro Arte in Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, a lyrical and noble work not fully appreciated in its own time. In his popular Symphony No. 5, Schubert channels Mozart, employing appealing melodies, lighter textures, and structural balance as a kind of homage to a composer he much admired.
