New music has no champion more ardent than violist Kim Kashkashian, who this week brings "Neharo't, Neharo't" ("Rivers, Rivers"), by Israeli composer Betty Olivero, to her concerts with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and conductor Thomas Zehetmair. Written during the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon-based Hezbollah, the piece -- whose title refers to the copious tears shed by women in mourning -- incorporates recordings of songs and laments. Bracketing Olivero is music by Schubert: an overture (to "Alfonso and Estrella") and the "Great" C-major Symphony, a work deserving of its moniker.
