BERNSTEIN
Symphony No. 1 "Jeremiah" - Britt Brown, mezzo-soprano

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Let’s celebrate the 100th birthday of my teacher, Leonard Bernstein, by doing both his music and the music of composers who were important to him: Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Gustav Mahler, and a piece by Franco Castagnone that inspired the young Bernstein when he was still in school. Award-winning mezzo-soprano Britt Brown (left) is in the spotlight for Bernstein’s emotional First Symphony, subtitled ‘Jeremiah.’"

BALAKIREV
Overture on Three Russian Folk Songs

 

KABALEVSKY
Cello Concerto No. 2 - Nathaniel Taylor, cello
TCHAIKOVSKY
Symphony No. 5

 


NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "The Russian school of composing is inherently dramatic, tuneful, and colorful. Basking in the familiarity of Tchaikovsky's ‘Fifth,’ this concert opens with traditional Russian folksongs in a symphonic setting by Balakirev and features a remarkable rising star cellist, Nathaniel Taylor, in Kabalevsky's dynamic and soulful concerto."

Symphony No. 1 "Titan"


Also featuring the Indian Hill Music School Student Concerto Competition winner.


NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Mahler is back! Gustav writes in such a way that excites today's musicians and wows audiences with extremes of tenderness, joy, and triumph. Beginning the concert, Finnish composer Jean Sibelius' spirited music will warm us up and the winner of Indian Hill Music School's annual Student Concerto Competition will bring youthful energy to the stage."

BRAHMS
Hungarian Dances, Nos. 10, 3 & 1
BRAHMS
Symphony No. 3
PAGANINI
Violin Concerto No. 1 - Robyn Bollinger, violin



NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Johannes Brahms is the favored composer of many a musician and concert-goer: Classical but Romantic; expressive but stoic; forward-looking but holding fast to old traditions of style. His Third Symphony and three Hungarian Dances anchor this program. I’m delighted to announce that the brilliant young violinist Robyn Bollinger has stepped in to join us for Paganini’s masterful Violin Concerto."

Symphony No. 5

 


NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Ta-ta-ta TAHH! Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is so important to musicians and the overall history of classical music. It is THAT important -- and to this day it’s as astonishing as it was 210 years ago! Also stunning is the music of Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara: a sonorous, ethereal, atmospheric, and compelling work featuring world-famous, two-time Grammy-winning clarinetist, Richard Stoltzman."

BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 6

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Our own spectacular musicians are in the spotlight for Bach's great Brandenburg!

And we’ll bring the concert (and the season) to an end with the exceedingly Romantic music of Sir Edward Elgar – the familiar musical portrayal of many of his friends."
