Maestro Theodore Kuchar leads the nationally renowned Reno Chamber Orchestra through their season’s second concert program, filling the air with stirring strains from award-winning soloists and works by masters such as Shostakovich, Vivaldi, and Haydn. The music making commences with Leo Weiner’s jaunty Divertimento no. 1 before the orchestra sets air particles vibrating with the ringing tones of Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony no. 86, best known for its status as the fifth of the “Paris Symphonies” and the fight song of the Arkansas Boll Weevils. Award-winning cellist Wendy Warner teams with RCO’s principal cellist Peter Lenz for a dulcet duet performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos. Warner holds center stage for the evening’s ultimate performance—Dmitri Shostakovich’s fiery Cello Concerto no. 1.
