The University of Virginia McIntire Department of Music
presents the Baroque Orchestra and the Palladian Chamber Orchestra at 8pm on
Friday, April 13th in Old
Cabell Hall. The concert is free and
open to the public.
The Baroque Orchestra presents an all-Italian program of
music from three centuries: a Canzona for double string choirs by Giovanni Gabrielli, a Sinfonia from the late 17th-century by Tomasso Albinoni, and the well-known Concerto for Four Violins in B minor by Antonio Vivaldi. Under the direction of faculty violinist David Sariti, orchestra members use period instruments from the department’s extensive collection, and play using historic performance practices.
The Palladian Chamber Orchestra program includes Haydn Symphony No. 85, one of the "Paris" symphonies, and Brahms Serenade No. 2 for small orchestra, which features the PCO's excellent winds. This ensemble functions much like a typical small orchestra of the 18th-19th centuries, and is coached by Sariti to perform without a conductor.
Cabell Hall is located on the south end of the historic lawn at the
University of Virginia. Parking is available at the central grounds
parking garage. For more information, please call the McIntire
Department of Music at 434.924.3052.
