YMMC Winter Concert at Sunset Center (Peninsula Reviews)


Soloist Amadeus Soria & Conductor Farkhad Khudyev (Peninsula Reviews)


“The brilliant young bassoon soloist, Amadeus Soria, the recent YMMC Concerto Competition winner, was featured in a lovely performance of Carl Maria von Weber’s Andante e Rondo Ungarese, Op. 35. Soria, a senior at Marina High School, and a pupil of Erin Irvine, will be attending the University of Chicago this fall. We don’t often hear a bassoon soloist with orchestra, so this was a very welcome occasion, and probably most of the people in the audience were as unfamiliar with this work as I was. Soria gets a rich sound from his instrument, and he displayed a nimble technique equal to the demands of this challenging work. He received thunderous applause and a prolonged standing ovation.”
