Pacific Chamber Orchestra: Golden Strings
The Pacific Chamber Orchestra under Maestro Lawrence Kohl showcases PCO’s golden strings in a program of delectable works for string orchestra. Samuel Barber’s heartfelt Adagio For Strings has been performed in many important public settings. It was one of President John Kennedy’s favorite works. Besides his great cello concerto Elgar’s most well-known work is his gorgeous Serenade for Strings. Richard Strauss’ String Quartet in A arranged for full string orchestra shows the composer in his full youthful exuberance with delightful teasing melodies.
