(Los Angeles, CA, January 27, 2022) Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra returns to Zipper Hall with an all-string chamber program featuring Mendelssohn’s fiery String Quartet in F minor, one of the last works completed by the composer, and Brahms’ mesmerizing Sextet in G Major, noted for its masterful counterpoint and musical inventiveness, on Saturday, February 12, 2022, 8 pm. Curated and led by LACO Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer, the string celebration also features LACO violinists Maia Jasper White, Tamara Hatwan and Josefina Vergara; violists Victoria Miskolczy, Robert Brophy and Jonathan Moerschel; cellists Andrew Shulman and Armen Ksajikian; and bassist David Grossman.
Batjer, lauded for her “gleaming warmth” (Los Angeles Times), “high-flying” performances and ability to make “her instrument purr and soar…with an engrossing combination of intensity and technical fluency” (San Francisco Classical Voice), is “downright exciting to watch and hear” (Violinist.com). She has served as concertmaster of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra since 1998, which has featured her on numerous world premieres and CDs, including a Deutsche Grammophon recording of Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins with violinist Hilary Hahn.
LACO recognizes the generous support of the Colburn Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. The Orchestra also
receives public funding via grants from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
