The Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra will open their 2018-2019 season with two majestic and beloved works:
“Sibelius Violin Concerto” Performed by violinist Angel Valchinov
“Brahms Symphony No. 3”
CHSO’s brilliant Concertmaster, Angel Valchinov performs as soloist in the vulnerable and unspeakably beautiful Sibelius Violin Concerto. The piece illustrates that not only do darkness and beauty coexist, they enhance each other.
Johannes Brahms “heroic” Third Symphony is a brave “monster” of a work with quickly changing character and huge sweeping melodies. The third movement is one you’ll find familiar — it’s been used on television and film — even Frank Sinatra “borrowed” the tune for his song “Take My Love.”
