A favorite of the downtown crowd, the SFCO’s Rush Hour concert series presents a 60 minute preview of their mainstage program.

This performance features the world premiere of SFCO Composer in Residence Gabriela Frank’s new violin concerto, written for concertmaster Robin Sharp. Scored for solo violin, 10 string players, and two percussionists, Hailli Lirico was inspired by a set of prayers delivered by Inca rulers, a personal incantation with their god.

This is the first major work composed by Latin Grammy-award winner Frank for the SF Chamber Orchestra during her three year residency, which continues through the 2011-12 season.

The program will also include Mozart’s delightful Serenata Notturno for strings and timpani and Bela Bartok’s exciting musical journey through his native countryside, the popular Roumanian Folk Dances.

Mozart: Serenata Notturno
Gabriela Lena Frank: Hailli Lirico for violin and chamber orchestra [world premiere]
Bartok: Roumanian Folk Dances
