FREE to all weekend classical ticket holders, this Thursday night experience moderated by ASO Program Annotator and Music Consultant Ken Meltzer features our own Orchestra musicians playing in a smaller, more intimate chamber concert before the night's performance. Seating is on stage, giving you a closer look at the music and musicians, and making you a part of the whole experience.This recital begins with a mesmerizing and haunting string quartet of Arvo Part, one of the most performed living composers of our time. This is followed by a wonderful new sonata for English horn and piano by the ASO's own Michael Kurth - technically demanding in parts, heart-rendingly beautiful in others, quirky and funny and sad and joyful all rolled into one.The recital closes with a teaser, in both senses of the word! On January 23rd-26th, the ASO will present performances of Till Eulenspiegel by Richard Strauss. Here, a chamber version of the piece is presented.Chamber Recitals are supported by a generous grant from Ken and Carolyn Meltzer.
