Discovery Ensemble Presents "An Embarrassment of Musical Riches"

Sunday, Mar 2 3:00p

Boston's dazzling chamber orchestra Discovery Ensemble, conducted by Courtney Lewis, will present "An Embarrassment of Musical Riches." TWO of the greatest symphonies of the 19th century repertory on one program, plus Berg’s rarely heard – and notoriously difficult to perform – string orchestra arrangement of 3 movements of his Lyric Suite. On top of that, Haydn’s C Major Cello Concerto, which will be performed by the young, brilliant, staggeringly original German cellist Nicolas Altstaedt.
