Welcome the new year with a study in contrasts: the sinfonia concertante is a musical genre that puts multiple soloists in contrast with an orchestra. Cellist Zlatomir Fung and violist Yura Lee join Maestro Sitkovetsky for sinfonie concertanti by Mozart, then portray the naïve adventurer Don Quixote and his sidekick Sancho Panza for Richard Strauss’ own spin on the form.
