Mozart                        Concerto for Oboe
David                          Concertino for Trombone
Dvorak                        Symphony No. 8
 
Inspiring music for spring...Of all of Dvorak's symphonies, his Eighth is the most pastorale, with lush, bohemian melodies, reminiscent of the idyllic countryside that surrounded the composer as he wrote.  ...and inspiring talent to showcase...Two extraordinarily talented musicians, performing on instruments one rarely has the pleasure of hearing solo.  A concert not to be missed.

Russian Romantics with Jane Hayes, Piano

Sunday, June 5, 2022

Rachmaninoff                   Piano Concerto No. 2
Borodin                              In the Steppes of Central Asia
Tchaikovsky                       Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
Rich, romantic, exotic and dramatic are adjectives that spring to mind for the Russian gems!  The Borodin will transport you to exotic places as you travel the caravans' dusty, bumpy routes.  The Tchaikovsky will touch your soul with the tumult and tragic love of Romeo and Juliet, and the Rachmaninoff will take your breath away with the sheer grandeur and power of the music, performed by our long-time friend and collaborator, pianist Jane Hayes.
