ORLANDO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA PERFORMS HOLST’S MONUMENTAL THE PLANETS
Internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the kamancheh (spiked fiddle), Kayhan Kalhor returns
A creative force in today’s music scene, Kayhan Kalhor returns to Orlando with a work he recorded with The Silk Road Ensemble and Music Director Eric Jacobsen leads the massive forces of the Orlando Philharmonic in Holst’s epic astrological masterpiece, The Planets on Saturday, November 3 at 8 p.m. at Bob Carr Theater.
“It was almost exactly 50 years ago that we first landed on the moon, and we have a program with the Philharmonic that’s celebrating the solar system, the universe, and the cosmos - it’s a program centered around Holst’s The Planets,” said Jacobsen. “One of my favorite things about this program is that our partner, the UCF Women’s Chorus, is joining us for one of the most gorgeous moments inNeptune.”
The concert also includes founding member of the Aizuri Quartet, Karen Ouzounian, cello; one of the leading tabla virtuosos in the world today, Sandeep Das, tabla; and the University of Central Florida Women’s Chorus.
The program includes:
BARTÓK – Three Village Scenes
KALHOR – Blue as the Turquoise Night of Neyshabur
HOLST – The Planets
