Chamber

Brass to Bassoon

You’ll delight in this serendipitous potpourri of exceptional chamber works. Vivaldi wrote 39 concertos for the bassoon, and this is the most famous one. Principal Bassoon Fernando Traba will showcase this divergent piece’s quick moves between tranquility and intensity. Paul Dukas’ Fanfare is now more popular than the ballet from which it originates, and will be performed by the entire brass section. John Cheetham’s A Brass Menagerie maintains a suspenseful pulse that will keep you on the edge. Debussy’s sonata is everything audiences love about his music: beautiful, fluid, expressive, and carefree.

Reviews

There's no doubt, audiences are thrilled by the Sarasota Orchestra's new music director, Anu Tali. She's brought an intense energy from the orchestra in previous performances and we found this yet again in a downright thrill ride of an encounter...

Written byHerald Tribune

Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.

Written byHerald Tribune

Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...

Written byHerald Tribune

A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

Written byHerald Tribune

It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.

Written byHerald Tribune

Tali conveyed a clear vision for the dramatic outline of this symphony, carefully pacing the darker, searching character of the music with pastoral conversations among voices in the orchestra.

Written byHerald Tribune

If you haven’t seen Tali yet, this will be a great introduction to the skyrocketing conductor who’s quickly becoming a household name around the world. You’ll see why we feel we’re lucky to have her here.

Written byThe Observer

Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.

Written byThe Observer

The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.
