With more than 20 years of guidance from artistic director Lorenzo Muti, the critically lauded Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle has grown into an elite ensemble that cultivates musical talent from around the world. The five-concert lineup for the 2011–2012 season includes Beethoven symphonies, Bach concertos, and choruses of local grackles. A January 15 performance treats ears to seldom-performed delights by Respighi and Villa-Lobos, and a May 20 concert leads guests on a trek through Spain, stopping to admire Bizet’s legendary Carmen Suite. At each performance, the group melds technical accuracy with musicianship stronger than a bodybuilder in a diamond muscle car.
A native of Spoleto, Italy, maestro Muti has studied at Julliard and conducted acclaimed ensembles such as the London Symphony, the BBC Symphony, and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. He has also ventured into the opera world, conducting singers across the U.S. with Mozart’s famous magic flute.
Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle
From its home in North Carolina, the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle takes listeners on a sonic journey around the world. The company's seasons mix beloved classics with rarely performed works and contemporary pieces, transporting audiences to Tchaikovsky's wildly wooded Russia or Verdi's baritone-filled Italy. And the orchestra's artistic director, Lorenzo Muti, is fittingly international himself—born in Spoleto, Italy, he has studied at Juilliard and conducted acclaimed ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra.
