This Thanksgiving, the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Robert Manno, returns with a holiday program entitled Basically Bach, featuring acclaimed piano soloist Simone Dinnerstein.
The evening’s program includes:
G.F. Handel: Entrance of the Queen of Sheba from Solomon
Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto for Two Cellos in G Minor (with David Heiss & Ashley Bathgate, cellos)
J.S. Bach: Orchestral Suite #3 in D Major BWV 1068
J.S. Bach: Keyboard Concerto #6 in F Major BWV 1057
J.S. Bach: Keyboard Concerto #2 in E Major BWV 1053
Since 2000 the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra under the direction of composer/conductor Robert Manno has earned accolades and national attention through the many broadcasts of its live performances from the Windham Chamber Music Festival and Catskill Mountain Foundation over American Public Media’s Performance Today.
Simone Dinnerstein has a distinctive musical voice. The Washington Post has called her “an artist of strikingly original ideas and irrefutable integrity.” She first came to wider public attention in 2007 through her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, reflecting an aesthetic that was both deeply rooted in the score and profoundly idiosyncratic. She is, wrote The New York Times, “a unique voice in the forest of Bach interpretation.”
Robert Manno is Co-Director of the Windham Chamber Music Festival, an award-winning composer, and an acclaimed conductor whose many performances from the Windham Festival and the Catskill Mountain Foundation have been featured nationally on “Performance Today.” The Atlanta Audio Society has described him as “a composer of serious music of considerable depth and spiritual beauty.
