Dorrit Matson, Music Director and Conductor, leads the New York Scandia Symphony in a concert of masterpieces by Danish composer Anders Koppel, Swedish Baroque composer Johan Helmrich Roman, Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, and Finnish composer Bernhardt Crusell. Featured soloists include Mayuki Fukuhara, violin and Steven D. Hartman, clarinet.
For over twenty years the New York Scandia Symphony has delighted New York City listeners with its warm and vibrant tone, a lovely clarity of expressive detail as well as interesting and exciting programs.
It has a valuable mission to present imaginative and creative programs of music by Classical, Romantic and Contemporary Scandinavian composers, introducing previously unknown and seldom performed compositions to American audiences. With up to 90% of its repertoire presented as U.S. premieres, the orchestra revives and preserves the works of Scandinavian composers that might not otherwise have been brought to the attention of the public.
