IRIS Orchestra "The Company We Keep"
March 15, 2014
THE COMPANY WE KEEP
Michael Stern, conductor
Featuring: IRIS Orchestra
Reid Messich, Oboe
Adrian Morejon, Bassoon
Miho Saegusa, Violin
Caitlin Sullivan, Cello
HAYDN Sinfonia Concertante for Oboe, Bassoon, Violin, Cello and Orchestra in B-flat major, Op. 84
BRAHMS Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73
The Sinfonia Concertante is a quintessential Haydn masterpiece: sparkling, challenging, joyous. The solo turns for violin, cello, oboe and bassoon become perfect vehicles for the inspiring virtuosity of the members of IRIS. The orchestra welcomes back a treasured member of the IRIS family: Jonathan Leshnoff's beautiful and expressively original music has been part of the IRIS performing and recording repertoire since 2005; IRIS commissioned and premiered his ebullient, energetic "Rush" in 2009. Concluding the program is another beloved friend: the pastoral Second Symphony of Brahms, which IRIS last played almost 10 years ago, one of the great achievements in Western music.
