St. Matthew

February 06, 2008

Members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic will return to St. Matthew’s Church at 8 p.m., Friday, February 15, for a program of music by Mozart, Brahms and John Harbison in the sanctuary, 1031 Bienveneda.

This year’s concert will again feature violinist Mitchell Newman and cellist Daniel Rothmuller, who will be joined by the Philharmonic’s new principal oboe Ariana Ghez. The program will include Mozart’s Oboe Quartet, the Sextet in B-flat Major by Brahms and “Snow Country” for solo oboe and strings by John Harbison.

Ariana Ghez, the newcomer to the Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble’s annual visit to St. Matthew’s, joined the Los Angeles Philharmonic as principal oboe at the beginning of the 2006/07 season. She has performed as guest principal oboe with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic. Prior to her appointment in Los Angeles, she was principal oboe of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and the Santa Fe Opera.

Other members of the Philharmonic who will appear on the February 15 program are Johnny Lee, violin; Dana Hansen and Ingrid Hutman, viola; Jason Lippmann, cello, and Christopher Hanulik, bass.
