Pacific Chamber Orchestra Performs Bruch & Mendelssohn

Join Pacific Chamber Orchestra for an evening of early and late Romantic works by Max Bruch, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel & Felix Mendelssohn. Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 features world renowned violinist Livia Sohn.

Pacific Chamber Orchestra (PCO) with Music Director Lawrence Kohl is presenting Bruch Violin Concerto #1 in g minor with violinist Livia Sohn, Mendelssohn Symphony #3 “Scottish” and Fanny Mendelssohn's Overture for Orchestra Saturday April 27, 7:30pm Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church and Sunday, April 28, 3:00pm Bankhead Theater, Livermore.

Livia Sohn’s prolific career includes performances with renowned US orchestras in five continents. Opus Magazine described Ms. Sohn as “a stunning and compelling musician." The Strad Magazine notes, “Sohn possesses a remarkably lithe and transparent tone of exceptional purity…. Even when under the most fearsome technical pressure at high velocity, every note rings true with pinpoint accuracy.” The Post and Courier adds, “Music-making does not get any better than this.” Her performance of Bruch’s Violin Concerto #1 in g minor will sing with the verve of the early Romantic Era explorations and with the lyric and passion of the later era’s greatest compositions.

Also on the program is Felix Mendelssohn’s evocative Symphony #3 “Scottish” and the wonderful Overture for Orchestra by his sister Fanny Mendelssohn.
