The Louisiana Sinfonietta's final concert of the season, "A Family Affair," will be performed at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 26, at the LSU School of Music Recital Hall on Dalrymple Drive.
Soloists appearing with the chamber orchestra will be three generations of the Jerzy Kosmala family in several pieces for violin and viola.
Kosmala, a former viola professor at LSU, is currently performing and teaching in California. His daughter, Weneta, was a former violinist with the Baton Rouge Symphony and the opera, and his granddaughter, Kasia Kosmala-Dahlbeck, a 17-year-old violinist, made her Carnegie Hall debut at 11 by winning first prize in the Alexander & Buono International String Competition.
Kosmala will play "Prayer" by Ernest Bloch and "Grecian Variations for Viola and Orchestra," by the Sinfonietta's conductors and music director, Dinos Constantinides.
Kosmala's granddaughter will join him in the concert’s opening piece, Antonio Vivaldi’s "Concerto for Two Violins" and in Constantinides’ "Family Triptych."
Weneta Kosmala will join them for the final "Hellenic Dance."
The program of mostly 20th-century works also will include Christopher Lowry's "The American Dream;" Swedish composer Kurt Atterberg’s "Suite No. 3" with soloists Christopher Lowry and Perla Fernandez; and Australian composer Paul Paviour’s "September Romance."
Tickets are $15 and $5 for students and are available at louisianasinfonietta.org.
