Known worldwide as one of the most remarkable prodigies of her generation, violinist Sarah Chang has grown from a promising talent into a mature artist of the highest order. Once named Gramophone's Young Artist of the Year, her fresh musical insights, technical virtuosity and intensity of emotion are mesmerizing, especially in a live concert setting. For this performance at Strathmore, she plays Vivaldi's most popular work, his Four Seasons, a set of four short violin concertos that are filled with dazzling effects mimicking natural phenomena such as storms, wind, thunder and rain, as well as bird calls. Chang's 2007 CD of the work attracted international acclaim, with BBC Music Magazine stating, "She has never made a finer recording." She'll also perform Strauss' adagio for strings, Metamorphosen, which he wrote during the closing days of World War II as an elegy for the destruction of Munich, including the historic National Theatre opera house.

I have been a fan of the Washington Symphonic Brass for more than 10 years. I am delighted that they are now at Strathmore and Strathmore has added greatly to the experience by adding wonderful lighting, Christmas decorations, and placing the players throughout the auditorium.
Phil Snedecor does a wonderful job of introducing the music and the musicians are top notch.
