The Chelsea Symphony announces its upcoming concerts, "Three Unmerry Men," on Friday, October 24 at 8:30 PM and Saturday, October 25 at 7:30 PM at St. Paul's Church, 315 West 22nd Street, New York, NY. The performances will feature three classic works inspired by Shakespearean drama: Ludwig van Beethoven's brooding Coriolan Overture, selections from William Walton's Henry V, and Dmitri Shostakovich's bracing Hamlet Suite. The concerts will open with the world premiere of "The Phoenix and the Turtle," a meditative work based on the eponymous Shakespeare poem, by Chelsea Symphony composer and bassist Tim Kiah.

In a Chelsea Symphony tradition, the concerts will also showcase musicians from the orchestra in solo roles. Bert Hill (horn) and Allison Nicotera (bassoon) are the featured artists in the charming Concertino for Horn and Bassoon (c. 1850) by Ignaz Lachner. The work, one of the few Romantic concerti for this combination of instruments, receives its U.S. premiere with these performances. On Friday, violinist Adam von Housen performs Antonin Dvorak's Romance; on Saturday, Theresa Rice is the soloist in W.A. Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 4. The concerts will be conducted by Mark Seto, Julie Desbordes, and Reuben Blundell.

George Frideric Handel: Nisi Dominus
Antonio Montanari: Violin Concerto in A (Op.1, No.1)
J.S.Bach: Christ lag in Todesbanden (BWV 4)
George Frideric Handel: Dixit Dominus

In 1707 both G.F. Handel and J.S. Bach were 22 years old, and they were rapidly expanding their musical horizons. Handel travelled to Rome where his virtuoso keyboard performances attracted the attention of influential patrons. For Cardinal Colonna he produced two stunning large-scale masterpieces – the grandiose Dixit Dominus and the exquisite Nisi Dominus, first performed in July 1707. Antonio Montanari, who shared Colonna as a patron and was violinist in Handel’s orchestra in Rome, wrote the Violin concerto which will serve as a virtuoso amuse-oreille. Bach’s travels were less distant – he moved within Germany – but his setting of Luther’s hymn Christ lag in Todesbanden bears the hallmark of genius. The chorale cantata, written for his application as organist in Mühlhausen, is described as Bach’s first-known attempt at painting narrative in music. Orlando Chamber Choir joins forces with five outstanding soloists and the International Baroque Players to perform these exciting and innovative young composers’ works.
