This week’s Symphonies of Iowa broadcast features the Orchestra Iowa Chamber Players’ “Tricksters & Troubadours” concert. The musicians performed three duo compositions by Koetsier, Ginastera, and Vivaldi, as well as chamber works by Milhaud, Wuorinen, and Strauss.
The first half of the program includes virtuosic works such as Vivaldi’s Sonata for Bassoon and Harp and Ginastera’s Duo for Flute and Oboe, written to showcase the musicianship of chamber players. The second half features exciting chamber pieces depicting the adventures of medieval tricksters and pranksters.
