Description

Program

Mozart: Symphony No. 33 in B-flat major

Mozart: Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major

Brahms/Swensen: Sinfonia in B (original 1854 version of Trio, Op. 8)

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra

Joseph Swensen, conductor

Kenneth Munday, bassoon

Recapture the exuberance of youth with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: Mozart composed his Symphony No. 33 at the age of 24 and the charming Bassoon Concerto when he was just 18! Kenneth Munday, principal bassoonist for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, will perform this concerto. Joseph Swensen will guest conduct Sinfonia in B, his arrangement for chamber orchestra of the Brahms Piano Trio. Swensen notes that his orchestration reflects the romantic and surprisingly radical mentality of 21-year-old original composer Brahms.

Arrive early for a concert prelude one hour before the concert to hear the stories behind the music with guest conductor Joseph Swensen.
