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.’"

Russian Nights



SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Littleton HS Performing Arts Center, 56 King Street, Littleton MA
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."

SIBELIUS
Suite from Belshazzar's Feast
MAHLER
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."

Best of Brahms



SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2019 at 7:30 pm

Littleton HS Performing Arts Center, 56 King Street, Littleton MA
BRAHMS
Hungarian Dances, Nos. 3 & 10
BRAHMS
Symphony No. 3
BRAHMS
Piano Concerto No. 1 - Ya-Fei Chuang, piano



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 the monumental Piano Concerto No. 1 anchor this program with breathtaking guest soloist Ya-Fei Chuang. We’ll begin the concert with a couple of Brahms' Hungarian Dances to whet the appetite for more!"

Clarinet Concerto - Richard Stoltzman, clarinet
BEETHOVEN
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 the world-famous clarinetist, Richard Stoltzman."

Concerto for 4 Violins in B minor

Vivaldi’s lively and well-known concerto features four string players from the Orchestra of Indian Hill and Indian Hill Music School faculty. 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."
