Why You'll Love This Concert
The Redlands Bowl’s 2014 season finale features the Redlands Symphony performing two of classical music’s most popular pieces… with fireworks!
Admission to concerts at the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival is always free!
Ludwig van Beethoven
piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, strings
The fifth symphony is remarkable in that the compelling energy of the entire first movement is derived from only a short opening motive of four notes. Literally every element is derived from this motive. Even the “contrasting” second subject is built upon the melodic outlines of the first bars and is accompanied by the motive itself.Read More
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
solo piano, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, violins, violas, cellos, basses
Although the young Tchaikovsky began music lessons at the age of five and progressed to improvising at the piano by fourteen, none of his teachers detected what was apparently a natural ability to compose. Thus, he was never encouraged to progress beyond the level expected of any average child from a middle-class family.Read More
I have had season tickets for the Redlands Symphony for 17 years. The opening concert on October 9 marked the beginning of my 18th season. I have attended every concert but 2 in that time, and they have been wonderful and inspiring, but the concert on October 9 was magical. Thank you, thank you, and thousand times thank you. If you have never attended, and you love music, you are depriving yourself of a superb experience.
