The first rehearsal for the Fall 2023 Divertimento concerts was last Thursday.
The program is…
- Brahms, Academic Festival Overture, Op.80
- Chopin, Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op.21 (1st mvt only)
(Laura D’Souza piano soloist)
- Gounod, Faust: Ballet Music
- Chausson, Symphony in B♭, Op.20, 35 minutes
Most of these we’ve played in previous seasons, but there’s a ton of good music here. The Chausson, in particular, has some great cello parts.
The soloist for the Piano Concerto won the honour of playing with us by taking first place at the Ottawa Piano Festival in May of this year.
Concert dates are November 10 and 11. Hope to see you there.
