Chirrup, whis­tle, slur, and shake: Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

Vi­o­lin­ist Colin Ja­cob­sen, who is a com­poser as well as a per­former, has gained par­tic­u­lar no­tice for his work with the cham­ber or­ches­tra The Knights, the string quar­tet Brook­lyn Rider, and the Silk Road En­sem­ble. Al­though he is es­pe­cially as­so­ci­ated with new or off beat mu­sic, he is also adept with the clas­sics. He ap­pears as soloist with the Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica Or­ches­tra, Thomas O’Con­nor con­duct­ing, in Prokofiev’s Vi­olin Con­certo No. 2 and in The Lark As­cend­ing, an “English pas­toral” work by Ralph Vaughan Wil­liams in­spired by or­nitho­log­i­cal verse of 19th- cen­tury poet Ge­orge Mered­ith: “He rises and be­gins to round/ He drops the sil­ver chain of sound/Of many links with­out a break/ In chirrup, whis­tle, slur and shake.” Round­ing out the pro­gram is Haydn’s much-loved Sym­phony No. 103, nick­named the Drum­roll in def­er­ence to its open­ing sonor­ity. Per­for­mances take place at 4 p.m. on Satur­day, March 5, and 3 p.m. on Sun­day, March 6, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets ($12-$69) can be had through www.tick­etssantafe.org or by call­ing 505-988-1234. — J.M.K.
