Summer Music in Cincinnati

Summer Music in Cincinnati
Rafael’s Music Notes/Seen and Heard International | 06.18.17

On four consecutive Saturdays in August, come the centerpieces of Summermusik’s season: four evening affairs led by the CCO’s new Music Director, Eckart Preu, in the acoustically-friendly Corbett Theatre of the School for the Creative and Performing Arts. The themed concerts will offer an off-beat mix of Baroque rarities by Albinoni and Gabrieli; 20th-century masterpieces (such as Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Ballet Suite); contemporary works by Phillip Glass and Peter Maxwell-Davies; and Romantic gems by Beethoven, Saint-Saens, and Mendelssohn. The array of soloists includes violinist Angelo Xiang Yu, and Cincinnati’s own keyboard virtuoso Ran Dank.
