Alexander Platt conducts the Caroga Arts Ensemble in a special Saturday Chamber Orchestra Concert. The evening opens with Alan Shulman’s Theme and Variations, for Viola, Strings and Harp.  Alan Shulman, cellist in the NBC Symphony and one of the great spirits of the Maverick for many years, was also a composer and this is his masterpiece. Belarus émigré Yevgeny Kutik, fresh from his concerto appearance with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, makes his Maverick debut in a special concerto version of the Dmitri Shostakovich 1968 Violin Sonata, as made famous in recent years by Gidon Kremer. Following the beloved Adagietto from Mahler’s Symphony No.5, the evening will close with the thrilling Concerto Grosso No.1 of the great Swiss-born Jewish-American composer of the early 20th century, Ernest Bloch.
