Bethel University: Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra

April 30, 2023 Benson Great Hall

Often family and friends are the source of inspiration for compositions, as is the case for this program. Richard Strauss was inspired by his father Franz’s horn playing when composing his Serenade for 13 Winds. Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson wrote Generations, a dance of the past, as a tribute to the women in his family. SPCO concertmaster Steven Copes performs Concerto in D for Violin and Orchestra, which was written for Joseph Joachim, Johannes Brahms’ friend, for over 40 years.
