ROCO in Concert: The Wrestler
About ROCO in Concert: The Wrestler
The final concert of ROCO's In Concert series on May 4, “The Wrestler,” features the world premiere of Erberk Eryılmaz’s "Wrestling Airs for Two Davuls and Chamber Orchestra (in memory of Koca Yusuf)" - showcasing the festivity and drama of a traditional Turkish wrestling match. Conductor David Danzmayr returns to ROCO with one of his favorite pieces, Jocelyn Morlock’s Solace, while organ soloist Paul Jacobs returns for Samuel Barber’s Toccata Festiva, and the program concludes with Franz Schubert's haunting unfinished Symphony No. 10, in a reconstruction by music scholar Brian Newbould.
