February 21: The Colburn Chamber Orchestra, Maxim Eshkenazy, Director

The Colburn Chamber Orchestra performs Johannes Brahms: Liebeslieder Walzer Opus 52 and Leos Janacek: Idyll.

Sundays Live is privileged to host annual concerts by the Colburn Chamber Orchestra. The most advanced of the Colburn School’s ensembles, the 35-member orchestra comprises students age 13 and above, and debuted in 2004 at Walt Disney Concert Hall on the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Sounds About Town series. The Coburn Chamber Orchestra plays a professional-level repertoire and regularly commissions and premieres works by internationally known composers, such as Thea Musgrave and Steven Stucky.

Conductor Maxim Eshkenazy was recently promoted to associate conductor of the Pacific Symphony, and also holds posts as music director of the Bakersfield Youth Orchestra and at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, where he leads both the Chamber and Youth Orchestras. He regularly guest conducts Bulgaria’s major orchestras, including the Sofia Philharmonic. Committed to the promotion of new music, Eshkenazy frequently programs and performs the music of contemporary composers.
