James Feddeck, guest conductor
Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture
Stravinsky: Pulcinella Suite
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4
Complimentary “Concert Comments” with the conductor and guest artist take place one hour before the performance and give you insight into what you’re about to hear.
The program opens with the Hebrides Overture, a work conceived by Mendelssohn’s Scottish trip and his visit to Fingal’s Cave, which inspired his musical representation of the eerie sounds produced by the echoes of waves. The suite from Stravinsky’s ballet based on the Commedia dell’arte character is the musical story of a suitor in his farcical attempts to woo a young lady. One of Beethoven’s most complex works, the Fourth Symphony is rich in beauty, fiery in tempo and exuberant in spirit. An exciting finish to the evening!
