OAK RIDGE, Tenn. – The New York City-based ensemble, Frisson performs 4 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Pollard Auditorium in Oak Ridge, presented by the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association. Tickets are on sale now.
Frisson is an explosive group of rising stars who are the best and brightest of the recent graduates from top music schools like Juilliard, Curtis and Yale. Led by artistic director and virtuoso oboist, Thomas Gallant, the musicians were chosen through auditions in New York City and are on a tour across the United States. Frisson showcases a myriad of rarely-performed masterworks and the core group of nine musicians expands and contracts into a variety of ensembles featuring violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn.
The group will perform Mozart’s Quartet in F Major for oboe and strings, Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin, and additional music by Villa-Lobos, Martinu, Svante Henryson, and August Walter. The artists will give a pre-concert lecture at 3:30 p.m. in the Pollard Auditorium.
