(Los Angeles, CA – December xx, 2022) Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) chamber music series continues with Baroque Concerti, a program of virtuosic chamber works curated by Concertmaster/Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer, on Saturday, January 28, 2023, 7:30 pm, at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, and Sunday, January 29, 2023, 7:00 pm at The Huntington’s Rothenberg Hall in San Marino. Highlights include newly appointed LACO Principal Viola Yura Lee featured on one of the earliest known viola concertos, Telemann’s Viola Concerto in G Major, and Principal Trumpet David Washburn performing the pre-classical Concerto for Trumpet in E-flat Major, a hidden gem by little-known Czech composer Johann Baptist Georg Neruda. The program also features Corelli’s festive Concerto Grosso in D Major, Op. 6, No. 4; Geminiani’s charming Concerto Grosso in D Major; and Handel’s Concerto Grosso in A Major, one of the most celebrated works for strings from the Baroque era.
The program is dedicated to the memory of Warner W. Henry, LACO Board Director Emeritus and a champion of chamber and Baroque music.
