Why You'll Love This Concert
“After Angel Blue joins us for the nostalgic beauty of Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, I present my parting gift to you after 33 years on the podium: the majesty of Mozart’s Great G-minor Symphony.” - Jon Robertson
Ludwig van Beethoven
2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, strings
As with so many other great discarded songs, ballets, and overtures from the history of theatrical music, it seems that Leonore Overture No. 3 is tantamount to a strong actor miscast for his role. Opera’s loss is the concert hall’s gain.Read More
solo soprano, flute (doubling piccolo), oboe (doubling English horn), clarinet, bassoon, 2 horns, trumpet, percussion, harp, strings
James Agee’s poignant look back at his childhood struck a chord with Barber, and when soprano Eleanor Steber commissioned a work from him in February, he immediately decided to set it to music.Read More
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, strings
