January 28 – 29, 2023

An evening of virtuosic chamber performances, featuring soloists Yura Lee in one of the earliest known Viola Concertos, Telemann’s Concerto in G Major, and David Washburn performing a hidden gem: the charming pre-classical concerto Concerto for Trumpet in E flat, by little-known Czech composer Johann Baptist Neruda.

The program also features Corelli’s rich and festive Concerto Grosso Opus 6 #4; Geminiani’s charming Concerto Grosso in D Major; and Handel’s grand Major Concerto, one of the most celebrated music for strings from the Baroque era.

This program is dedicated in memory of Warner W. Henry, LACO Board Director emeritus, and lover of chamber and Baroque music.
