The next performance from the Auburn Symphony, Youth Movement, is a part of their Chamber Series. Join musicians from the Auburn Symphony for an intimate chamber music experience. Get up close and personal with the musicians as they perform works by Richard Strauss and Felix Mendelssohn, both young prodigies who changed the course of chamber and orchestral music for centuries to come. Parking is free. Light refreshments and coffee served during intermission, by donation.
Mark Salman, who has performed two piano concertos with the Auburn Symphony, joins former concertmaster Brittany Boulding and principal cello Brian Wharton. Richard Strauss’ Sonata for Violin and Piano, known for its lyrical beauty and technical demands of the musicians was written by the young composer in 1887. This Violin Sonata is suggestive of Mendelssohn’s influence. And while Mendelssohn had written the Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture at 17, and is compared to Mozart in his early ability to compose and perform, this Piano Trio came at age 36, only two years before his death.
