The OMF 2016 summer season begins with a bang as superstar violinist Sarah Chang returns to perform with festival artists in a program featuring Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, a sultry tango-inspired violin concerto based on Vivaldi’s famed masterpiece.
OMF Artistic Director Julio Elizalde performs Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major in the composer’s own arrangement for string quintet. Bottesini’s Gran Duo Concertante, an operatic fantasy for violin and double bass, has been a favorite work of OMF audiences for years. Violist Mark Holloway, an artist of the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, makes his debut.
