Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
Beethoven’s Triple

Nir Kabaretti , Conductor
Paul Huang, Violin
Ani Aznavoorian, Cello
Gilles Vonsattel, Piano

This February the Santa Barbara Symphony returns to a work it co-commissioned more than a decade earlier, acclaimed composer Joseph Schwantner’s enchantingly delicate Chasing Light. The evening continues with Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, featuring three stellar musicians with a rich history of performing locally: violinist Paul Huang and cellist Ani Aznavoorian, both of Camerata Pacifica, and pianist Gilles Vonsattel, who regularly performs with the celebrated ensemble. Closing the evening will be Robert Schumann’s popular five-movement Symphony No.3, which is said to have been inspired by the history and spirit of Europe’s mighty Rhine river.

J. Schwantner: Chasing Light
Beethoven: Triple Concerto
Schumann: Symphony No. 3 in E-Flat Major, Op. 97 “Rhenish”
