Event Program (PDF)

For the winter quarter, the Chamber Orchestra has split into two orchestras, so that we can fit on the Concert Hall stage (!) We present two programs, both featuring the music of the excellent and influential composer Joseph Bologne (often known by his title the Chevalier de Saint-Georges). He was perhaps the first musician of African descent to be widely celebrated in Europe, and as well as being a virtuoso violinist, conductor and fencer, his violin writing in particular was hugely influential on Mozart.

We also feature two exciting larger symphonies: Schubert’s “Unfinished” and Tchaikovsky’s second symphony, which draws its material from Ukrainian folk songs.



Symphony no. 1, in G Major - Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges

I. Allegro

II. Andante

III. Allegro Assai
