The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle (COT) and Maestro Lorenzo Muti present a concert of works by composers who musically "went against the grain." This afternoon of music will include Mussorgsky's Overture to Khovanshchina, Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5, and the North Carolina premiere of Menotti's Violin Concerto, performed by featured guest artist violinist Hye-Jin Kim.
The concert will begin with Modest Mussorgsky's evocative Overture to Khovanshchina. Breaking from musical norms and looking to the motherland for inspiration, Mussorgsky strove to achieve a uniquely Russian musical identity. His overture instantly transports you to the grand and enchanting courts of Princes and Tsars.
Refusing to follow the avant-garde musical trends of the 20th century, Gian Carlo Menotti was shunned by critics and loved by the general public. Menotti's Violin Concerto is a testament to his incredible ability to tell stories through music, even without the aid of one of his dramatic librettos.
Known for her musical sensitivity and deeply engaging performances, violinist Hye-Jin Kim leads a versatile career as soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician. Since her First Prize win at the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, she has performed with orchestras including The Philadelphia Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, New Haven Symphony, BBC Concert Orchestra (UK), Seoul Philharmonic, Pan Asia Symphony and Hanover Chamber Orchestra. At the invitation of Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Kim performed at the U.N. Headquarters in both Geneva and New York and served as a cultural representative for Korea in Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan through concerts and outreach engagements. A dedicated teacher, Kim is frequently presented in masterclasses throughout the U.S. and is on the faculty of East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.
The concert will conclude with Symphony No. 5 "Reformation" by Felix Mendelssohn, which was meant to celebrate a momentous event of the Protestant Reformation. Full of joy and fire, the work was ultimately not used for the celebrations, and interestingly has become more popular now than when it was first published.
Renowned for its artistic excellence, remarkable versatility of musical styles, and adventurous programming, The COT is a dynamic orchestral ensemble of 40+ musicians hailing from all parts of North Carolina. Presenting six concerts a year and featuring classical music's foremost up and coming talents, it is considered one of the finest professional ensembles in North Carolina and the Southeast.
