On March 22 & 23 at the Majestic Theatre, the San Antonio Symphony will perform Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous work, The Four Seasons. Not only is this the most enduringly popular instrumental work of the Baroque period; it is also a revolutionary work that was wildly innovative and unique for its time, possessing the power and beauty of nature’s four seasons. Conductor and violinist, Cho-Liang Lin will lead the orchestra. The second half will feature selections from Schubert, including his Konzertstück for Violin and Orchestra with Mr. Lin as soloist and conductor.
Mr. Lin’s recent and upcoming concerts reflect his wide-ranging musical activities. Performing on several continents, he appears as soloist with orchestras of Dallas, Toronto, Houston, Nashville, Detroit, San Diego and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra; in Europe with the Bergen Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, and the English Chamber Orchestra and in Asia with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Malaysia Philharmonic, Bangkok Symphony. In the 2010/11 season he completed an extensive residency as Artist of the Season with the Shanghai Symphony, which included performances as soloist and conductor, participation in chamber music, and master classes.
An avid chamber musician, Mr. Lin appears at the Beijing Music Festival, as well as his perennial appearances performing at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Aspen Music Festival, and Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. As Music Director of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest since 2001, Mr. Lin has helped develop a festival that once focused primarily on chamber music into a multidiscipline festival featuring dance, jazz and a burgeoning new music program commissioning composers as diverse as Chick Corea, Stewart Copeland, Leon Kirchner, Christopher Rouse, Wayne Shorter, Kaija Saariaho and Gunther Schuller.
