George Frideric Handel Concerto Grosso in a minor, Op. 6, No. 4
Frederick Frahm Concerto for Organ and Strings
Ottorino Respighi Ancient Airs and Dances, Suite No. 3
Arcangelo Corelli Concerto Grosso in D Major, Op. 6, No. 1
The New Mexico Philharmonic’s final performance of its Neighborhood Concert Series features works spanning over three hundred years. From the works of Handel and Corelli in the 1700s, to Respighi in the 1930s arranging works from the 1600s and 1700s, to Albuquerque’s own Frederick Frahm’s Organ Concerto of 2012, this program is jam packed with variety and excitement. The concert is bookended by two quintessential concerti grossi, a form first made popular by Corelli in the late 17th century. Frederick Frahm will serve as soloist for his own Organ Concerto that is inspired by a poem of Nobel Prize-winner Saint-John Perse. In the melancholy Third Suite of his Ancient Airs and Dances, Respighi ingeniously arranges Renaissance lute and Baroque guitar works for the modern string orchestra. Come join conductor David Felberg for this “through the centuries” musical adventure!
