Orchestra Iowa players: Haydn, Mozart, Brahms
Join us tonight at 7 to hear Orchestra Iowa principal players delight with masterpieces for horn by Haydn and Mozart and a supreme works for string by Brahms. Principal horn Andy Harris shines in a Divertimento by Haydn and the Horn Quintet by Mozart; he's joined by the orchestra's new concertmaster Luke Witchger and by Karla Galva, violist Lisa Ponton, cellist Carey Bostian, and double-bassist Volkon Orhan. Then five strings players come together for the masterpiece that Brahms meant to be his final work - his String Quintet no. 2. Brahms turned out not to be able to stop writing music after this, but you'll hear why he was so proud of it. The concert is part of our Symphonies of Iowa Series, produced and hosted by Jacqueline Halbloom.
