The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra 2012-2013 season grand finale features music from the 18th century classical period, situated between the Baroque and Romantic eras. This period sought to emulate the ideals of Classical Greece. Classicism emphasized well-articulated formality, structural clarity and order, but included brighter contrasts and an element of simplicity.
Alessio Bax, an audience favorite, will be joining the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra as the featured piano soloist. Mr. Bax is praised for creating “a ravishing listening experience” with his lyrical playing, insightful interpretations and dazzling facility. “His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity,” says Gramophone magazine, leading to “an out-of-body experience” (Dallas Morning News). Since taking first prizes at the Leeds International Pianoforte Competition and the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan, Bax has won audiences across the globe.
Rossini: L’Italiana in Algeri Overture
Schubert: Symphony No. 5, D. 485 in B-flat Major
