In commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Nordic Chamber Music 2023 will present Seattle Chamber Orchestra’s founder Lorenzo Marasso's own arrangement of Henryk Gorecki's Third Symphony – A Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for two pianos and soprano, sung in the original Polish. Lorenzo will be joined by pianist Yerin Kim on the second piano and soprano Laura Loge for this moving work originally for orchestra. An exploration of the connection between Polish music and music from across the Baltic in Sweden will round out the program.

The 2023 Season of the newly rebranded and reimagined Nordic Chamber Music Series will be produced and underwritten by the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society. If you would like to support this series and ensure its future, please donate here

About Lorenzo Marasso, piano

Lorenzo Marasso is an impassioned and sympathetic conductor, concert pianist, chamber musician, educator and radio host. Dubbed the "king of repertoire," Lorenzo's creative programming reveals lesser known masterpieces and rarely performed arrangements. Lorenzo's performances have been broadcast in numerous media outlets, including Seattle's 98.1 Classical King FM and NPR. In 2021 Lorenzo founded the Seattle Chamber Orchestra and is serving now as the ensemble's music director. In the same year he also started hosting a weekly radio program called Dress Rehearsal on 107.3FM KBFG Seattle. Equally inspired by contemporary music, Lorenzo has commissioned and performed world premieres of new works by several international composers who have written and dedicated pieces to him. In July 2020 he completed the Invention Project, a commission of new pieces for piano inspired by J.S. Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias. Further commissions included works composed by Michael Finnissy, Edward Cowie and Bernhard Lang.
