The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra presents “Sweet Sounds” on Saturday, October 19, in Marion, at Wickenden Chapel, Tabor Academy. The 5:00 pm performance features violinist Ariadne Daskalakis performing Bach’s Concerto in E Major. Also on the program: Sinfonia in B-Flat by Carlos de Seixas, Capriccio Stravagante by Carlo Farina, and Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 87 in A Major.
The intimate setting of the chapel provides the perfect backdrop for this chamber music performance. All four pieces show the extraordinary development of music-making that took place over a period of about 100 years and the international breadth of it – the composers are Portuguese, German, Italian, and Austrian. The style of the pieces varies considerably, but they all share an energy and sweetness of sound that makes them speak to audiences today.
