Symphomaniax Summer Recital "Silent Spring" - Series Event #1
The Symphomaniax Summer Recital Series features excerpts from an eclectic repertoire that spans virtually all style periods including from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern, Post-Modern and Contemporary Pop music. PLEASE CLICK ON THE YouTube LINK ABOVE TO VIEW THE PERFORMANCE.
The opening night program includes “La Folia,” a sequence of variations by Antonio Vivaldi, operatic excerpts by Verdi, Ponchielli & Bizet, special arrangements of three songs by the Beatles, and two world premiere performances of compositions by James Domine entitled “China Replications,” dedicated to the victims of the Covid19 virus pandemic and world healing, and “Fantasia,” subtitled “Moonshine Sonata” for reasons that become evident upon hearing the piece.
The Symphomaniax is the flagship chamber music ensemble of the SFVSO. The members of the quartet are music director James Domine, guitar & continuo, Ruth Bruegger, violin, Susan Winsberg, flute, and Larry “El Marauder” Muradian on bass. All the members are principal players with the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra.
