African Suite – Fela Sowande
Elegy (for those we lost) – Aaron Jay Kernis
Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge – Benjamin Britten
Concerto Grosso, Op. 3, No. 11 – Antonio Vivaldi
This performance features Nigerian composer Chief Olufela Obafunmilayo “Fela” Sowande’s nostalgic African Suite. Living American composer Aaron Jay Kernis’ Elegy (for those we lost) was written in memory of the victims of Covid-19. In 1937, Benjamin Britten’s Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge was written as a character portrait of his revered teacher. Antonio Vivaldi’s bold Concerto Grosso, Op. 3, No. 11 is a virtuoso work for three string players and orchestra.
Featured Violinist: Evan De Long, FCS Concertmaster finalist
