Concert Tidbits

  • Anthony Trionfo began playing flute at 11 and gave his first public performance at age 14 with the Las Vegas Philharmonic as a winner of their Young Artist Concerto Competition. Trionfo is not only great at music but is a black belt in Shaolin Kempo!
  • John Wineglass is both a talented composer and he played in the DC Youth Orchestra in 1984 and went on to win multiple Daytime Emmy awards for his Outstanding Musical Achievement for All My Children.
  • Jacques Ibert was a rebel that insisted on musical freedom and independence. His quest meant the rejection of two dominating artistic trends at the turn of the 20th-Century: French Impressionism and German Impressionism. Ibert only wrote music that he was “happy to listen to himself.”
  • Brahms Symphony No. 1 was hailed as a supreme masterpiece, Brahms was so afraid of comparisons to Beethoven (50 years after the premier of the Beethoven’s 9th), that it took him two decades to write Symphony No. 1. Brahms himself declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876.
