What’s Interesting About This Concert
- Cool vibrations abound in this FREE virtual concert featuring music that spans three centuries. Join 30 minutes ahead of the
- concert to hear Maestro Cabrera in conversation with soloist Robyn Bollinger and California Symphony featured artists.
- Full of Hungarian folk harmonies, Bartók’s violin sonata is famously difficult. There are parts where the soloist has to pluck and bow at the same time; sections with several notes played simultaneously, and a fiendishly fast passage that was originally written in quarter-tones.
- An all-star California Symphony Wind Quintet performs Afro-Caribbean and jazz infused pieces from Aires Tropicales by Cuban-born American composer Paquito D’Rivera.
This concert is made possible by California Symphony donors, with additional support from a CARES Act grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
