Tetzlaffs Guest with CSO This Week

Siblings Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff join Paavo and the Cincinnati Symphony this week for a rare concert with two guest instrumentalists.

This week's program features Weber's Overture to "Euryanthe"; Brahms' Concerto for Violin and Cello in A Minor ("Double"); and Schumann's Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major ("Rhenish"). Listen to Paavo's Notes about this concert in MP3 or Real Player formats. And help cut down on that insidious paper crinkling noise by reading the Program Notes before you go! :-) (I just did and discovered that the Weber was performed as part of the first-ever performances of the CSO in 1895--and that "Euryanthe" was based upon a 13th century tale which appeared in one of my favorite books: Boccaccio's Decameron!)

Performances will take place Friday, March 3, at 11 am and Saturday, March 4, at 8 pm. Saturday night is also College Nite, so students may purchase $10 tickets, including both the concert AND a party after the concert, with free appetizers, cash bar, great prizes, mingling with CSO musicians, meeting Paavo and live music by Latin band, iZUMBA!. Call (513)744-3590 to order advance tickets.

A recording of this concert will air via streaming audio on Classical 90.9 WGUC Sunday, April 2, at 7:30 pm ET.
