Orpheus Chamber Orchestra

Description

Branford Marsalis, saxophone

Mondavi Center Presenting Program

In 1972, a group of young artists made history by creating an orchestra without a conductor in which musicians led themselves democratically. Since then, the Grammy award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has recorded over 70 albums on all major classical labels, toured to 46 countries across four continents, and collaborated with hundreds of world-class soloists. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis, equally renowned for his jazz and classical playing, joins Orpheus for this eclectic program of works written for chamber orchestra and saxophone, including works by Debussy, Ravel, Satie and a commissioned Jazz Suite on the themes of Carmen.
