Elite Homes is proud to be a sponsor of The Louisville Orchestra Neighborhood Series and The LG&E Music Without Borders Series! The concert series will continue on Friday, November 11 at the Jeffersontown Community Center and Saturday, November 12 at the Ogle Center at IUS with In The Spotlight. Teddy Abrams conducts the LO in a program of concertos that feature members of the LO as soloists.
In preparing for the Neighborhood series, Louisville Orchestra’s music director, Teddy Abrams, wanted to bring a chamber music concert into the mix. Abrams said, “For this program, I wanted to take this opportunity to feature some of our amazing Louisville Orchestra musicians as soloists. We at the Louisville Orchestra are so fortunate to have an incredibly talented group of dedicated musicians and this is the perfect program to highlight their musical gifts and share them. He continues, “I am beyond proud to present this set of concerts with your Louisville Orchestra as we turn the spotlight on our own musicians featuring our extraordinary soloists: Gabriel Lefkowitz, Julia Noone, Robert Simonds, Kimberly Tichenor, Nicholas Finch, Alexander Vvedenskiy, Andrea Levine and Matthew Karr.”
LO’s new concertmaster, Gabriel Lefkowitz will be in the spotlight when he performs Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins with Jullia Noone, Robert Simonds and Kimberly Tichenor.
Lefkowitz is looking forward to the performances and noted, “Chamber music of any sort (be it a piano trio, a woodwind quintet, or a concerto for multiple soloists like this Vivaldi) comes with some rewarding challenges. I think the main one is this paradox of maintaining your individual identity and sense of style as an artist while blending with others and giving up enough of your individuality for the greater artistic good of rendering a cohesive musical performance. What’s rewarding about this is not only that you give a great performance, but that you also come out on the other side knowing your musical partners a little bit better as artists and people!”
The program also features works by CPE Bach, Richard Strauss, and Vivaldi’s Concerto for Oboe with the LO’s principal oboe, Alexander Vvedenskiy as soloist.
