Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (Canceled)

Presented by Mondavi Center, UC Davis at UC Davis Mondavi Center

Note: The Mondavi Center is sad to announce the cancellation of the 20-21 Season of live performances.

In 1972, a group of young artists made history by creating an orchestra without a conductor in which musicians led themselves democratically. Since then, the Grammy award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has recorded over 70 albums on all major classical labels, toured to 46 countries across four continents, and collaborated with hundreds of world-class soloists. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis, equally renowned for his jazz and classical playing, joins Orpheus for this eclectic program of works written for chamber orchestra and saxophone, including works by Debussy, Ravel, Satie and a commissioned Jazz Suite on the themes of Carmen.

Program:
-Gioachino Rossini, Overture to The Barber of Seville
-Joaquín Rodrigo, Suite from Soleriana
-Claude Debussy, Rhapsody for Alto Saxophone & Orchestra
-Erik Satie, Gymnopédie No. 1 for Alto Saxophone & Orchestra
-Maurice Ravel, Piéce en Forme de Habanera for Saxophone & Orchestra
-Joaquín Turina, La oración de torero Op. 34
-Courtney Bryan, Carmen, Jazz suite on themes by Bizet (Orpheus Commission)
