Chamber Orchestra Season Finale Electrifies
Enquirer | 08.27.17

The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra ended its 2017 Summermusik festival on a high note of energized playing and a program that was full of surprises.

Eckart Preu’s concert on Saturday, the last of his inaugural season as music director, continued an inventive formula that has been engagingly successful. It included an interesting program with thematic connections – this time around Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” – a terrific soloist (pianist Alon Goldstein) and a local collaboration (dancers from MamLuft & Co. Dance).

With electrifying playing by the orchestra, it all added up to a riveting evening in Corbett Theater at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Over-the-Rhine.
