Philharmonia Northwest invites us to the second concert in their season, “Exhilaration.” This livestreamed concert features Seattle’s beloved cellist Nathan Chan, and includes Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile and an arrangement of David Popper’s Fantasy on Little Russian Songs. It also spotlights the acclaimed young African-American composer Jessie Montgomery, with her piece Strum, of which she said, “Drawing on American folk idioms and the spirit of dance and movement, the piece has a kind of narrative that begins with fleeting nostalgia and transforms into ecstatic celebration.” Finally, the concert concludes with the exhilarating String Symphony No. 2 in D major by Felix Mendelssohn. Join Philharmonia Northwest for this exhilarating performance.
