We are thrilled to present Beatrice Chen, 2018 winner of the Johansen International Competition on viola, performing Béla Bartók’s renowned Viola Concerto. This powerful program also includes works inspired by Greek mythology, including the premiere of Scott Pender’s Oedipus Suite and Alan Hovhaness’s Meditation on Orpheus.
