Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48

Jörg Widmann spotlights a new work by Sebastian Adams, currently blazing a trail as a composer and viola player of repute, with a passion for contemporary music. 2018.2 explores the possibilities of the individuals in the orchestra as much as the instruments they play. Puccini‘s Chrysanthemums, written as an elegy for the Duke of Savoy, is a beautifully poignant movement that also featured in Puccini‘s opera Manon Lescaut. Johann Stamitz’s Clarinet Concerto was an early milestone in the development of the genre, and Jörg Widmann invites Katherine Spencer into the spotlight, to show off the vast capabilities of her artistry and instrument. Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous Serenade for Strings, is one of his most enduringly popular works. This, combined with the irrepressible energy and insight brought by Widmann and the ICO, has all the makings of an unforgettable performance!

“Obviously the creative communication between Widmann and his ensemble (Irish Chamber Orchestra) works extremely well, which makes for an exciting future.”
