Red Bank, N.J.— The Monmouth Symphony Orchestra begins its 65th season on Sunday, October 27, 2013, at 3 p.m. at the Count Basie Theatre, with soloists Garry Ianco, violin, and Jameson Platte, cello. On the program are the majestic Double Concerto of Johannes Brahms, and the brilliant tone poem Scheherazade by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Led by Conductor Roy Gussman, the program will begin with Johannes Brahms’ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. The last orchestral work written by the composer, it is a piece requiring both great technical brilliance and delicate musical expression by both soloists. Violinist Garry Ianco and cellist Jameson Platte are equally matched, and will hold the audience spellbound with their performance of this vast and sweeping concerto.

The soloists will remain on stage for the second half of the concert, which will feature the colorful tone poem “Scheherazade” by Russian composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov. This perennial favorite of the orchestral repertoire, which has prominent parts for solo violin and cello, paints vivid pictures of tales from the classic “1001 Arabian Nights”, including an ocean voyage, a powerful prince, a love story, and a shipwreck, employing many varied tone colors and beautiful melodies.
