PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia is opening its season with a performance of Haydn/Beethoven on September 30th and October 1st in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater.
“We have two great works. I mean, we have Violin Concerto of Beethoven, which is definitely a key concerto for all soloist violinists. And then Haydn, who is definitely known for his beautiful symphonies–that’s why we choose them,” says Executive Director Peter Gistelinck.
The program also features violinist Lorenzo Gatto.
“The reason we invited him is because of an alliance that we have with the international Queen Elizabeth Music Competition. He actually won the second prize a few years ago. He has never performed in the U.S. with an orchestra, so it’s a real treat for Philadelphia,” Gistelinck explains.
