Why You'll Love This Concert
The artistry of Redlands Symphony principal trumpet David Scott highlights an evening of beloved 18th century masterpieces.
George Frideric Handel
2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns, harpsichord, strings
Hornpipes, airs, and the robust rhythms of English folk dances emerge naturally from the music as though Handel had been hearing them his whole life, with hints of Purcell lingering in the background. It doesn’t take a musicologist to understand the immediate popularity of the Water Music.Read More

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, strings
Whatever the reasons for their composition, the three symphonies were to be a fitting valedictory statement to a form in which Mozart excelled. They are among the finest ever composed.Read More
The performance of Mozart's 40th was amazing. How Maestro Wilson conceived and brought forth the intensity, tension, and considerable emotion moved me deeply. The orchestra's discipline and preciseness were astonishing. When you've got only two horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets, there's no room to fudge the pitch in the opening note of a phrase. I loved the way the horns and basses supported and colored the melodies.
As you can tell, I'm not a musician, but I am a huge Mozart fan. I'm also a huge fan of the Redlands Symphony and count myself fortunate to be able to attend a local concert of such glorious music.
