Norway’s most celebrated composer, Edvard Grieg, takes center stage in our May 2021 ArmchairConcert as our SOR quartet performs his passionate and dramatic String Quartet #1. We hope to feature this composition with our full SOR orchestra next season, as it is symphonic in scope and harmonically complex, making it the perfect choice for a larger ensemble.
Jay Ungar’s Ashokan Farewell and Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango finish our program with two wonderful violin duos arranged by the celebrated American violinist, Mark O’Connor.
Your musical friend,
Maria, Artistic Director, SOR
