Rimma Bergeron-Langlois,leader & violin
ARVO PÄRT– Fratres
MENDELSSOHN– Concerto for Violin & String Orchestra
TCHAIKOVSKY– Souvenir de Florence, for string orchestra

This concert has Rimma’s fingerprints—and fingers!—all over it! Not only did she curate it, she also leads the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and performs on all three works. First up is Arvo Pärt’s shimmering classical music “hit,” Fratres (Latin: Brethren), revealed through his tintinnabuli technique that immerses you in a meditative sound world. Then it’s Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto—no, not THAT one. The wunderkind wrote another one at age 12! Across borders and decades, its manuscript was “rediscovered” and premiered by the legendary Yehudi Menuhin. And now you’re the first OPO audience to hear it. Finally, Rimma and the Philharmonic’s strings crown this evening with enriched memories of Tchaikovsky’s beloved sunny-blue-skies-Florence.
