Pasadena Community Orchestra (PCO) Soloists will perform Mozart’s, Sinfonia Concertante K. 297b, Vivaldi’s Concerto alla Rustica RV 151 and Weber’s Symphony No. 1 under the baton of Music Director Beth Pflueger on Friday, March 13, 2020, 8:00 p.m. at the First Church of the Nazarene in Pasadena.
Woflgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Four Winds K. 297b is a work for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon and orchestra. Soloists include: Aubree Day Cedillo – oboe, Richard Holloway – clarinet, Don Fisher – bassoon and Melissa Clemens – horn. Antonio Lucio Vivaldi’s Concerto alla Rustica RV151 was written between 1720 and 1730. It is a virtuoso, Baroque piece for orchestra with a slow 2nd movement. The final dance movement is in Lydian mode which is common in folk music of the period. Carl Maria von Weber’s Symphony No. 1 in C was written between 1806 – 1807. Debussy once wrote about his music that, “the sound of the Weber orchestra was obtained through the scrutiny of the soul of each instrument.”
