CSO presents Beatles, Beethoven, Brahms, and Baroque
During October, the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will present three different concerts spanning a wide range of music. This October, there is a concert for everyone!
The first concert of October and the kickoff to the Luken Holdings Pops Series is The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul presented on October 6 at 8pm in the Tivoli. CSO Favorites, Jeans ‘n Classics, return to the Tivoli stage, conducted by Music Director Emeritus Robert Bernhardt, to bring some of the Beatles’ greatest hits! Voted number 3 and number 5 in Rolling Stones Top 500 albums of all time, Revolver and Rubber Soul include classics like “Eleanor Rigby,” “Girl,” “Nowhere Man,” and of course, “Yellow Submarine!”
Award-winning pianist Alexander Schimpf will join the CSO on Saturday, October 20 at 8pm for a concert of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms. The concert opens with one of Mozart's last works, Overture to The Magic Flute, a charming piece. The finale piece, Brahm’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major, is “brilliant yet warm, and I believe the 2nd movement is one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching movements in the history of symphonic works,” says Music Director Kayoko Dan.
Over the past several years, Alexander Schimpf has risen to prominence by impressively winning a series of competitions, including First Prize at the 2009 International Beethoven Competition in Vienna, and most recently emerged as the first German pianist ever to win First Prize at the prestigious Cleveland International Piano Competition, playing the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 which he will perform with the CSO.
The CSO Chamber Series opens on October 28 at 3pm in the Silver Ballroom of the Sheraton Read House with Basically Baroque. Works by Baroque master composers Bach and Telemann as well as pieces by CPE Bach and Albinoni are on the program. CSO Principal Viola, Robert Elder, is a featured soloist on this concert. Music Director Dan will also pull out her flute and join CSO Principal Flute, Janet Hale, for Telemann’s Canonic Sonata for Two Flutes.
Tickets for The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul and Beethoven & Brahms start at $19. Tickets for Basically Baroque are $20. To purchase tickets or for more information, contact the CSO Box Office at 423.267.8583 or visit www.chattanoogasymphony.org.

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN'S WILL
NEW YORK (AP) -- Philip Seymour Hoffman had said he didn't want his children to be "trust fund kids." And his accountant says that's why the actor turned aside the suggestion that he set up a trust fund for his three children. The New York Post says a court-appointed lawyer for the children interviewed the accountant for the actor, who died earlier this year of a drug overdose. The accountant says Hoffman wanted his fortune, estimated at $35 million, to go to his longtime partner and the children's mom, Mimi O'Donnell.
"TYRANT" PRODUCTION MOVED FROM TEL AVIV
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The current unrest in the Middle East has caused production of the FX's series "Tyrant" to pull up stakes. The show had been shot in Tel Aviv. But producer Howard Gordon says the show has since moved to Istanbul to resume production. Gordon tells a TV critics panel in California that when Tel Aviv began drawing missile fire, "people were running into bomb shelters." And he says while people on the set didn't feel "physically threatened," the atmosphere "was not conducive to shooting." The last two episodes of the show's first season will be shot in Turkey.
FORMER "50 SHADES" ACTOR AWAITS RESULTS
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The actor who had the original lead for the movie version of "Fifty Shades of Grey" says he still believes in the film, even though he won't be in it. Charlie Hunnam says he's "really excited" to see the movie and is "really, really curious" to see how it turned out. Hunnam dropped out of the "Grey" project a month after he landed the role. He says he believes his replacement, Jamie Dornan, is "probably a lot better looking and a lot smoother" than he is. Though Hunnam says he wouldn't mind having his audition tape be part of a DVD extra for fans of the movie. The movie is due out next Valentine's Day.
