PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia presents “Bottesini/Schubert” on Sunday, January 27th and Monday, January 28th in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater.
Listen to the podcast below…
“The works we have chosen from these composers [are] all works written when they were very young. So we have the first symphony of Prokofiev, it’s Op. 25, but Sergey Prokofiev wrote it when he was only 21 years old. Bottesini’s the Double Bass Concerto he wrote when he was 30 years old. Wolf’s “Italian Serenade,” a work of 1887 that Wolf wrote when he was 27, and then Schubert. Schubert — who had a very, very, very short life — and this work, his second symphony, he wrote when he was 18 years old,” explains Peter Gistelinck, the executive director.
