SUK Serenade for Strings
A selection from Mozart’s vast treasure trove of little-known gems is followed by Marius Constant’s riveting, shockingly far-ranging essay for solo trombone, a work as rare in design as it is incandescent. Through his lovely opus for solo strings, Dvorak student (and eventual son-in-law) Josef Suk is felt by many to have bettered his master in this particular genre.
Riverside Symphony’s principal trombonist, Mike Lormand, is a member of numerous cutting-edge ensembles, both contemporary and traditional, and regularly performs with such leading orchestras as the Metropolitan Opera and The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
