Fremont County Orchestra Symphony Pops: Brahms and the Stradivarius “Red Violin”
Two virtuoso performers Evan Drachman (chello) and Elizabeth Pitcairn (violin) will be featured on the Johannes Brahms “Double Concerto.” The Concerto was Brahms’ last work (1887) for orchestra and written to feature cellist, Robert Hausmann and Brahms’ “estranged” friend, violinist, Joseph Joachim. Joachim happened to be one of the owners of the “Red Violin” and Brahms was hoping to be reconciled to him through compositional “gesture.”
The FSO will perform the “Grand March” from Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser, “Symphony No. 1” by Rimsky Korsakov, and the “Ballet Suite” by Dmitri Shostakovich.
