San Francisco Chamber Orchestra / The Incredible Shrinking Orchestra! Fools day

Main Stage Concert #3: The Incredible Shrinking Orchestra!

David Tanenbaum

David Tanenbaum, guitar

Well-known and much-loved Bay Area classical guitar virtuoso David Tanenbaum returns for his third solo appearance with the SF Chamber Orchestra, which will feature the Bay Area premiere of Composer in Residence Gabriela Lena Frank’s recent Latin Grammy-Award winning composition, Inca Dances, for guitar and string quartet. David will also perform an unusual double concerto by Vivaldi for guitar and viola d’amore. Another highlight of this program will be the world premiere of our new chamber orchestra version of Stravinsky’s masterpiece, The Rite of Spring, which caused riots in the concert hall upon its premiere in Paris in 1913. This premiere marks the first public offering in our innovative Incredible Shrinking Orchestra Project, and is the result of a year’s work by five talented young composers from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, under the guidance of Gabriela Frank and SFCM professor Dan Becker.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
