DSO BERLIN MUSICIANS
Baabdath New Church - 8:00 pm

Four members of Berlin’s Deutsche Symphony Orchestra (DSO) imagined for Baabdath a robust program alternating unusual repertoire. Zoltán Kodály’s duo for violin and cello Op. 7 in the first part of the concert and Eric Korngold’s suite for 2 violins, cello and piano in the second part. Mind you that in most of the second part, the piano score is for left hand only. Beethoven is part of the gig as the quartet performs his trio in one movement for violin, cello and piano.
