These pieces are written in the contemporary stile brillante tradition, in which the point is not to develop a musical idea through dramatic transformation, but to showcase the performer’s skills, stunning the audience with virtuosic displays through the presentation of loosely-connected musical ideas. On these terms, the work is considerably more successful.Read More

In a move which may (and did) raise eyebrows, Prokofiev decided that Juliet should instead return to life in Romeo’s arms so that the happy couple could dance together into a bright and happy future.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.
