Heart and Soul

Thomas Le Duc-Moreau, conductor
Jung Tsai, curator & violin

Purcell: Abdelazer Suite
Marjan Mozetich: Affairs of the Heart
Purcell-Britten: Chacony in G minor
Respighi: Ancient Airs and Dances

KWS Interim Concertmaster Jung Tsai performs Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich’s passionate violin concerto Affairs of the Heart. Purcell showcases immense variety in his incidental music masterpiece Abdelazer. This revenge tragedy is famously the basis for Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. The history buff and imaginative Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, who studied orchestration under Rimsky-Korsakov, brilliantly repurposes the spirit and soul of Italian and French lute music in Ancient Airs and Dances.

Please note:
Unless otherwise stated, all KWS performances in the 2021-22 Season will have no intermission.
