The Symphony presents the second of its Chamber Concert Series on Sunday November 23, 2014 at 3 p.m. in the Meagher Theatre of the Thomas A Bruder, Jr. Life Center at Neumann University, Aston, Pa.
The November Chamber Concert opens with Music Director Tim Ribchester, piano, and concertmaster Nina Vieru, violin, performing works by Argentinean born composer Astor Piazolla. As a pianist Ribchester brings a special musical message to this concert. During his in depth studies of Argentinean tango music at the Academia Nacional del Tango, Buenos Aires, Ribchester acquired a unique appreciation of the creative technique and intricate sounds of Piazolla's works.
It was Piazolla who fused classical music, including Bach and Jazz into a new style of tango music known as nuevo tango. American music critics hailed Piazolla as the world’s foremost composer of tango music. It may be said that Piazolla changed the history and sound of tango music.
The concert continues with the fresh and vibrant sounds of American Jazz featuring the DCS Jazz Ensemble led by Vince Iannone, flute, clarinet and saxophone performing original arrangements and a wide selection of classic popular Jazz including all time favorites, How High The Moon, Autumn Leaves in an arrangement by Miles Davis, Sister Sadie by Horace Silver and Moanin' by Bobby Timmons.
Chamber program commentary will be provided by Tim Ribchester, Music Director Delaware County Symphony.
