Julie Landsman, principal horn for the Metropolitan Opera Company will join Marji Danilow, principal bass for the New York City Opera and Todd Palmer, clarinetist whose recent recording of Mozart and Tchaikovsky landed him on the cover of BBC Magazine in works by Beethoven, Prokofiev and Radzynski to be performed by the Concordia Chamber Players on April 4 at 3 p.m. in the Stephen Buck Theater.
“We are delighted to have these wonderfully talented artists join our Concordia Chamber Players for our final concert of the season,” noted Michelle Djokic, cellist and artistic director of Concordia. “Julie Landsman has been an outstanding performer with the Metropolitan Opera Company for nearly twenty years. Marji Danilow is an active chamber artist who has been widely acclaimed for her musical versatility and is a fixture with the renowned Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. Todd Palmer, clarinetist has thrilled our audiences in past seasons and we are so happy that he will be joining us again this year,” added Djokic.
Rounding out the Concordia Players’ lineup will be inveterate favorites, Carmit Zori, violinist, Robert Rinehart, violist, Marc Goldberg, bassoon and cellist, Michelle Djokic.
The concert will feature the young Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Septet that was one of the most popular compositions in his lifetime. It is joyful, energetic and youthful. Jan Radzynksi’s String Trio will feature a beautifully moving melody based on an old Yiddish song, and the Prokofiev Quintet, an exciting work reminiscent of Stravinsky will close out the program.
