Stefan Jackiw, violin
Victoria Chiang, viola
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
The rich sound of the viola is showcased in this concert. Violist Victoria Chiang brings
her “deep and communicative sound” (Baltimore Sun) to Telemann’s Concerto for
Viola. Mendelssohn expands the role of the viola in the String Symphony No. 9, a brilliant and animated piece influenced by the classicist Haydn, but demonstrating a more
modern and intimate style. The concert culminates with Mozart’s masterful Sinfonia
Concertante, featuring charming exchanges between violist Ms. Chiang, the stellar violinist Stefan Jackiw and the orchestra.
