Heroism and Elegance Kicks Off Camellia Symphony’s 52nd Season
The Camellia Symphony Orchestra (CSO) begins its 52nd Season with Heroism and Elegance, a beautiful and very celebratory evening including the Little Suite by Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski and Beethoven’s powerful Symphony No. 3 (Eroica).
First on the program is Lutoslawski’s the Little Suite. “2014 marks the 20th anniversary of his death, and even though he is not well known in the U.S., he was one of the most important composers of the 20th century and he is highly celebrated in Europe,” said Christian Baldini, the Camellia Symphony Orchestra’s music director and conductor. “His Little Suite uses folk melodies from a village near Cracow that are transformed throughout the piece, which runs about 12 minutes in length.”
