Brian Thornton: Sirventes

June 20, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Cleveland Orchestra cellist Brian Thornton presents two new works from his album Sirventes, an album featuring works by Iranian female composers.  Works by Nina Barzegar and Mina Arissian will receive their Cincinnati premieres to open the concert.  Chopin wrote his epic cello sonata for his friend Auguste Franchomme, the virtuosic cellist.  Mr. Thornton is joined by Dr. Frank Huang for this performance at Ascent.  The program closes with a work by Mr. Thornton’s teacher, Lev Aronson, a Holocaust survivor who was a renowned pedagogue and former principal cellist of the Dallas Symphony.
