For her first orchestral concert as MCO’s artistic director, Sophie Rowell invites you to revel in the power and possibilities of the string orchestra.
We start with the majesty and eloquence of Bach—a single strand of sound that unfolds into a miniature universe. And we end with Sophie as a soloist, in the dazzling youthful Mendelssohn Concerto in D minor.
In between, we weave together through time and place, tracing rich connections on three continents in four centuries. We thread together Melody Eötvös’ Meraki, inspired by a Greek word meaning to perform with soul, creativity, and love; a musical firework by American genius Coleridge Perkinson; a dash of theatrical Mozart; and a love-letter to Tchaikovsky.
