LGSO 2014-15 Concert Season: “Monuments”


Chamber Music Concert Series
Sunday, March 1, 2015, 3:00pm
Immanuel Lutheran Church, Lake Geneva

The Lakeview Strings and the LGSO Brass Quintet will perform on March 1. The strings will perform Peter Warlock’s Capriol Suite, which is based on a set of Renaissance-style dances. The six movements vary widely in character, ranging from an elegant pavane to the exhilarating Mattachins, or Sword Dance. The quartet will also perform Mozart’s Divertimento in F major, one of three he composed after returning home from a six-month tour of Italy.
The LGSO Brass portion of the concert features music written originally for brass quintet. Selections include John Cheetham’s Scherzo, a short Rondo in an American style, the introspective Four Movements for Five Brass by Collier Jones, and the monumental Quintet No. 1 by Russian composer Victor Ewald. The Ewald piece is one of the first pieces ever written specifically for a brass quintet and is still one of the standards in repertoire.
