The British are coming!

Experience one of the most famous symphonies by a British composer, A London Symphony by Ralph Vaughan Williams. In the composer’s words, "If the listener will imagine himself standing on Westminster Embankment at night, surrounded by the distant sounds of The Strand, with its great hotels on one side and the ‘New Cut’ on the other, with its crowded streets and flaring lights, it may serve as a mood in which to listen." Joseph Haydn, a brilliant Austrian composer, was also considered a superstar in England. We’ll begin the evening with his last symphony, Symphony No. 104, known as London Symphony. We will also treat you to Colombian virtuoso clarinetist Benito Meza in Maestro Amaya’s clarinet concerto Wuaraira Repano, the aboriginal name given to the mountain that towers over his birth city of Caracas.

The Troublemakers

 

We all got into trouble when we were little, but some made a career out of it! Join us as we explore their entertaining antics in the most notable compositions about troublemakers. Magical mischief takes center stage in Paul Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, made famous by Disney’s movie Fantasia. You will follow the dramatic struggles of the seductive, untamable gypsy Carmen, see how Maria gets in trouble in The Sound of Music, and dodge bullets in Aaron Copland’s Suite from Billy the Kid. Enjoy one of the most recognized pieces by German composer Richard Strauss in his depiction of the 14th century legendary prankster Till Eulenspiegel.
