SALT LAKE CITY - Barlow Bradford will conduct the Utah Chamber Artists choir and orchestra in the fourth and final concert of their season on Monday, May 6, 2013. The concert will take place at 7:30 PM in Libby Gardner Concert Hall on the University of Utah campus.
Utah Chamber Artists is delighted to present cellist Matthew Zalkind performing Franz Josef Haydn?s Cello Concerto No.1. Mr. Zalkind, a native of Salt Lake City, has performed throughout the United States and abroad as a recitalist, soloist, and chamber musician. He has been praised by the New York Times for his ?impressive refinement, eloquent phrasing, and singing tone.? As a soloist, Mr. Zalkind has performed concerti with such organizations as the Moscow Chamber Players, the Albany Symphony, the Hongzhou Philharmonic, the Utah Symphony, the Tongyeong International Music Festival Orchestra, and the Music Academy of the West Festival Orchestra in Santa Barbara. Also an active chamber musician, Mr. Zalkind has participated in numerous music festivals, including Marlboro and Ravinia. His participation with Utah Chamber Artists is especially meaningful as his parents violist Roberta Zalkind, and trombonist Larry Zalkind perform frequently with the UCA Orchestra.
The choir and orchestra will be performing Gabriel Fauré?s ?Messe Basse?, or ?lower mass?. Composed in 1881 the lyrical and under-stated work foreshadows the composer?s more famous and beloved Requiem. Also on the program is another revered work by contemporary composer, Morten Lauridsen. (whose 70th birthday we celebrate this year). Les Chansons des Roses is a group of five songs set to the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke.
Matthew Zalkind will join the choir and orchestra in other selections to be announced.
