ARTIST BIOS:

Nancy Roth, violinist (and violist), is currently concertmaster of the Culver City Symphony and Marina del Rey Summer Symphony. She is also concertmaster of the Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay and a member of the Pasadena Symphony. She is a former member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, was co-principal violist of the Graz Philharmonic in Austria, and served many years as concertmaster of the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra and the Carson-Dominguez Hills Symphony. Nancy has been a featured soloist with numerous Southern California orchestras including the Culver City Symphony, Carson Symphony, Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Southland Symphony Orchestra, Valley Symphony and Rio Hondo Symphony. She has given recitals and radio broadcasts in the United States, Austria and Mexico, and she is currently a member of the new music group “TEMPO” based at California State University Northridge. Nancy is a member of the String Family Players (quintet), which performs educational programs for the Music Center On Tour, and she has been on the faculty of the Max Aronoff Viola Institute Summer Music Festival. She has played baroque violin and viols with James Tyler in the London Early Music Group and Los Angeles Musica Viva. Nancy holds a Bachelor of Music from CSUN, a Master of Music from the Juilliard School and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Southern California.

 

 Lorenzo Sánchez, pianist, has enjoyed interpreting music of a variety of styles and nationalities in the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Lorenzo premiered Robert Guillory’s Concertino for Piano and Orchestra. His interest in Polish music led to him giving several lecture-performances at the Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles, California. He has performed for African-American composer George Walker and Japanese composer Mitsuru Asaka in Hawaii. He has played for several choirs touring Italy, The Vatican, and several Filipino community celebration masses at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Los Angeles. Looking toward his own heritage, Lorenzo has edited and helped publish piano works by Mexican composer Domingo Lobato. He has recorded two CDs of Lobato’s solo piano works , and recently released a CD with clarinetist Virginia Figueiredo. All of his recordings are available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and others. Unfortunately, the global pandemic caused the cancellation of concert appearances in Brazil and Mexico this year. Lorenzo holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California.

 

PROGRAM NOTES:

The two works on this program were originally composed by men close in age. Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev was 29 when he wrote his Five Melodies for singer Nina Koshetz in 1920. According to LA Phil write John Henken, Prokofiev did most of his work on these melodies right here in California. “I am as ecstatic about California as it is about me,” Prokofiev wrote from Los Angeles. [1] As a pianist, I am struck by the exquisite harmonies, orchestral textures, technical challenges, and sheer beauty. The violinist’s part is also rich with typical string-player arsenal: pizzicatos, double stops, singing melodies, and harmonics. The result is gorgeous music from a legendary Russian composer who was in our part of the world.

 

Mexican composer Domingo Lobato was 27 when he composed his Sonata Noël. Lobato’s varied output includes works for solo piano, voice, sacred and secular choral works, organ music, and orchestral pieces. His music encompasses many styles, including atonal music, works that reflect dance music from his home state of Michoacán, and those of an international flavor. However, his earlier works are abundant with impressionist elements. The pulchritudinous Sonata Noël is comprised of four movements; each representing a different facet of the Christmas theme. - Lorenzo Sánchez
