Zachary Cohen Plays Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata

Thursday, October 5, 2023
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

2 best available tickets — Thursday, October 5, 7:00pm

Event Details:

Principal Bass Zachary Cohen plays an arrangement of Franz Schubert's famous work for arpeggione, a now extinct instrument similar to a bowed guitar, alongside Florence Price's technically and lyrically epic String Quartet No 2. Originally published in 1935, the quartet was rediscovered in 2009 with hundreds of manuscripts written by Price over her lifetime - audiences are in for a treat as the SPCO tackles the entire work after having previously performed the "Juba" movement for streaming audiences early in the pandemic. The program concludes with a Clarinet Quintet titled "The Refugee" by Lev "Ljova" Zhurbin which is "inspired by stories of people leaving their homeland, to find basic ways to continue their life and find some level of comfort." Ljova has been based in New York City since fleeing Russia with his family as a child.

Organization Details:

Renowned for its artistic excellence, remarkable versatility of musical styles and adventurous programming, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is widely regarded as one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Now in its 65th concert season, the SPCO has recently undergone transformational change with the opening of its new home, the Ordway Concert Hall, the addition of a new generation of players, and significant changes in its artistic vision. The SPCO is primarily an unconducted ensemble that performs a broad range of repertoire from Baroque to new music and works in close collaboration with a dynamic roster of Artistic Partners.

The virtuoso musicians of the SPCO present more than 100 concerts and educational programs in the Twin Cities each year. The orchestra’s free online Concert Library receives more than 350,000 visits annually and offers both live and on-demand videos of concerts that can be viewed anytime, anywhere, completely free of charge. Through its partnership with Classical Minnesota Public Radio, the SPCO is regularly heard on public radio programs that reach nearly 850,000 listeners each week on over 250 stations. Additionally, the SPCO has released 68 recordings, including its recent critically-acclaimed recording of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Concertos with Artistic Partner Jeremy Denk and the 2018 Grammy Award-winning recording of Franz Schubert’s Death and the Maiden with violinist and former Artistic Partner Patricia Kopatchinskaja. The SPCO has commissioned 162 new works and tours nationally and internationally, including recent engagements in Europe and New York City, and a prestigious residency with violinist Joshua Bell at the 2021 Bravo! Vail Music Festival.
