“Year in and year out, some of the area’s most intriguing orchestral programming arrives with Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra’s Summermusik Festival,” writes David Lyman in Sunday’s (6/6) Cincinnati Enquirer (OH). “CCO’s 2020 season was knocked out of commission by the pandemic…. But CCO … were able to produce a full-fledged, if online, festival. And now they’ve announced their 2021 lineup. It’s a smaller festival, with just two weeks of concerts instead of the usual three…. The primary quality that makes the festival so worthwhile, the breadth and adventurousness of its repertoire, is as strong as ever. Because guidelines for audience health are continuing to evolve, CCO has followed the lead of several other arts groups and opted to take Summermusik outside [at] a quirky mix of venues. The large, full-orchestra concerts led by [Music Director Eckart] Preu will take place in Seasongood Pavilion in Eden Park. Meanwhile, the Sunday afternoon concerts will be performed at Coney Island’s Moonlite Pavilion and Chamber Crawl concerts will take place at the Cincinnati Zoo’s Wings of Wonder Amphitheater, Coney Island’s Moonlite Pavilion and Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park’s Pavilion.” Featured composers will include Berio, Mozart, Saint-Saëns, Persichetti, Sujari Britt, Reena Esmail, Jessie Montgomery, and Nico Muhly.
