The 2014 Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra season is officially one of 86 in the history books.
At 8:15 p.m. tonight in the Amphitheater, Neubauer will perform the Chautauqua premiere of renowned American composer Aaron Jay Kernis’ “Concerto for Violin and Orchestra” with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra under the direction of guest conductor Christof Perick.
When a conductor demonstrates historical knowledge by adjusting the scope of expression to accommodate the composer’s — what a different kind of conductor might call restraint — the audience is in for a treat and an education.
At 8:15 p.m. tonight in the Amphitheater, German maestro Christof Perick will conduct his first of two concerts this week. Perick is the seventh of the eight candidates to appear with the CSO this summer; Daniel Boico will be with the orchestra for its final two concerts on Saturday and Aug. 19.
