Our March 20th concert features the return of Owen Young and Lucia Lin performing the Brahms Double Concerto for violin, cello and orchestra. March 20th at 2pm at the Manchester Essex RHS Auditorium in Manchester-by-the-Sea.

A few comments from Maestro Yoichi Udagawa about what we will be hearing this Sunday, March 20, 2pm.

“We are so excited to perform for our audience masterpieces of classical music by Beethoven and Brahms, but also the world premiere of a work by Charles Floyd commissioned by the Cape Ann Symphony.”

Floyd's Hymn for the Fallen

“Charles Floyd’s latest composition Hymn for the Fallen written for the Cape Ann Symphony is a moving memorial to those we have lost. We are thrilled to premiere this beautiful piece on March 20. Charles is a composer who has an amazing ability to create works that touch our hearts.”

Brahms' Double Concerto

“We are very excited that violinist Lucia Lin and cellist Owen Young are returning to the Cape Ann Symphony to perform Brahms' Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra. The Double Concerto is the last major work for orchestra that the great composer wrote, and it's a masterpiece. The way he weaves the violin and cello part together with each other and the orchestra is beyond compare, and it has some of the most beautiful melodies he ever wrote.”

Beethoven's Symphony No. 7

“We will be closing the concert with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, one of his most popular works. It combines everything about the music of Beethoven we love. His rhythmic drive, dramatic gesture, energy as well as lyricism and humor. We are really looking forward to sharing this music with our audience.”

He has appeared in the Tanglewood, Aspen, Banff, Davos, Sunflower, Gateway, Brevard, and St. Barth's music festivals and is a founding member of the innovative chamber ensemble Innuendo. Mr. Young's performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio, WQED in Pittsburgh, WITF in Harrisburg, and WGBH in Boston. He has performed frequently with singer/songwriter James Taylor, including the nationally televised concert "James Taylor Live at the Beacon Theatre" in New York City. Mr. Young was formerly on the faculties of the Boston Conservatory, the New England Conservatory Extension Division, and the Longy School of Music; is currently on the faculty of Berklee College of Music; and is active in Project STEP (String Training and Education Program for students of color). From 1991 to 1996 he was a Harvard-appointed resident tutor and director of concerts in Dunster House at Harvard University.

Lucia Lin

Lucia Lin enjoys a multi-faceted career of solo engagements, chamber music performances with the Muir String Quartet, orchestral concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and teaching at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts.

Born in Champaign-Urbana, Lucia Lin first made her debut at age eleven, performing the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Chicago Symphony and then went on to be a prize winner of numerous competitions, including the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Described as a “passionate and graceful” soloist with “virtuosity and insight” (Indianapolis Star), and whose playing has “a genuine fresh quality not often heard” (Cincinnati Enquirer), Ms. Lin has performed throughout the U.S. as well as on the international stage.

At the age of 22, she won a position in the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She then went on to become acting concertmaster with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and then spent two years as Concertmaster with the London Symphony Orchestra, where she was leader for numerous recordings and tours, including those to Japan, Italy, Scotland, and Spain.

A return to the U.S. in 1995 brought her back to Boston with a focus towards chamber music, first founding the Boston Trio, and then becoming a member of the renowned Muir String Quartet in 1998. The quartet’s dedication to teaching helped to foster Lin’s passion for helping young musicians to discover their own musical voice. The influence of her mentors, Paul Rolland and Sergiu Luca, is reflected in her pedagogy. She is currently Associate Professor at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts, where she teaches applied violin, chamber music, and orchestral studies.

Ms. Lin’s passion for the other arts—including dance, visual, literature—has prompted her to look into creating projects that make connections across the arts. In 2007, she collaborated with the dance company, Snappy Dance Theater, in the world premiere of ​“String Theory​”, an innovative piece integrating music with dance and technology. Currently, the pandemic and social uprisings of 2020 are the impetus for Ms. Lin’s newest project,​ “In Tandem”, ​an initiative dedicated to bringing new voices to classical music through commissions of ten emerging composers from the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music.
