Viennese Classics on June 2nd
The Spectacular Fifth Anniversary Season concludes in June, when the Sinfonietta will be joined by two spectacular soloists. Pianist Benjamin Hochman’s playing has been described as blending “the smoothness of cream and the transparency of water”(New York Times). His performance of Mozart’s Gmajor Piano Concerto is highly anticipated.
Cellist Wilhelmina Smith, whose playing of the music of Esa-Pekka Salonen was “a tour de force of virtuosity” (Portland Press Herald) is equally at home in modern and classic repertoire. The Concerto in D Major by Haydn, which combines elegance with sparkling wit, will surely be a joy for all to hear.
The Sinfonietta will also perform music by Robert Fuchs, teacher of Mahler and Sibelius, about whose music was said “everything is so fine, so skillful, so charmingly invented” — by none other than Johannes Brahms! This is music certainly worth hearing! Buy your tickets today!

About the Sinfonietta
The Sinfonietta of Riverdale is a unique ensemble – large enough to perform chamber symphonies and small enough that each of its world-class musicians can be a featured soloist, with a repertoire that extends from the era of Bach to the present day.
The Sinfonietta will seek to enhance the artistic environment of Riverdale and the surrounding community by presenting great classical and modern music in our own neighborhood. We will also serve as an educational resource by presenting children’s concerts and by collaborating with local schools and youth organizations.
