Riverside Symphony Presents: Antecedents

  • Details
  • Georg Philipp Telemann’s dancing concerto grosso sets the stage for Matthew Greenbaum’s similarly light-footed concertino for oboe, a work—in both title and substance—that reveals the composer’s deep affinity for Baroque music. Correspondingly, Mozart’s glowing, shockingly mature early symphony betrays a significant debt to transitional master C.P.E. Bach—of whom the former once proclaimed: “He is the father, we are the children.”

    Described as an “expressive, wonderful player” (SZ Magazine, Germany); “virtuoso and elegant” (Double Reed Magazine, Germany); and “outstanding” (The New York Times) — Roni Gal-Ed is a first prize winner at the International Lauschmann Oboe Competition in Mannheim, Germany, and a recipient of scholarships from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and from the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.
