CSO presents Beatles, Beethoven, Brahms, and Baroque
During October, the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will present three different concerts spanning a wide range of music. This October, there is a concert for everyone!
The first concert of October and the kickoff to the Luken Holdings Pops Series is The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul presented on October 6 at 8pm in the Tivoli. CSO Favorites, Jeans ‘n Classics, return to the Tivoli stage, conducted by Music Director Emeritus Robert Bernhardt, to bring some of the Beatles’ greatest hits! Voted number 3 and number 5 in Rolling Stones Top 500 albums of all time, Revolver and Rubber Soul include classics like “Eleanor Rigby,” “Girl,” “Nowhere Man,” and of course, “Yellow Submarine!”
Award-winning pianist Alexander Schimpf will join the CSO on Saturday, October 20 at 8pm for a concert of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms. The concert opens with one of Mozart's last works, Overture to The Magic Flute, a charming piece. The finale piece, Brahm’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major, is “brilliant yet warm, and I believe the 2nd movement is one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching movements in the history of symphonic works,” says Music Director Kayoko Dan.
Over the past several years, Alexander Schimpf has risen to prominence by impressively winning a series of competitions, including First Prize at the 2009 International Beethoven Competition in Vienna, and most recently emerged as the first German pianist ever to win First Prize at the prestigious Cleveland International Piano Competition, playing the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 which he will perform with the CSO.
The CSO Chamber Series opens on October 28 at 3pm in the Silver Ballroom of the Sheraton Read House with Basically Baroque. Works by Baroque master composers Bach and Telemann as well as pieces by CPE Bach and Albinoni are on the program. CSO Principal Viola, Robert Elder, is a featured soloist on this concert. Music Director Dan will also pull out her flute and join CSO Principal Flute, Janet Hale, for Telemann’s Canonic Sonata for Two Flutes.
Tickets for The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul and Beethoven & Brahms start at $19. Tickets for Basically Baroque are $20. To purchase tickets or for more information, contact the CSO Box Office at 423.267.8583 or visit www.chattanoogasymphony.org.
