NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "Classically Romantic is a perfect label for this exciting, tuneful program. While the names may not be familiar, the music will be, and you'll be humming all the way home! The Kodaly is exciting. Bruch's Concerto is one of the most popular in the repertoire. And the Sibelius? Stirring and uplifting."

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "This program was inspired by the fabulous concerto for the double bass. Chinese composer Tan Dun is one of the most sought-after composers today, and we have arranged to do the New England Premiere performance! As the work is subtitled 'Wolf Totem,' we're taking the great outdoors as our cue and including a delightful Dvorak opener and Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony. It's all about nature!"

Rossini
La gazza ladra Overture (The Thieving Magpie)
SCHUMANN
Symphony No.2
MOZART
Symphony No. 6
KRAFT
A Kennedy Portrait
Jeremiah Kissel, narrator



NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "On this amazing program we connect with composers at various points in their lives. From the prodigy Mozart at age 11 to famous Rossini at 25, celebrity Schumann at 36 and the composer Kraft at 65, we have major composers who composed music that will last forever. And in the case of William Kraft, we celebrate the all-too-short life of John F. Kennedy, who in 2017 would have turned 100 years old. So this concert is both a celebration and a commemoration, a tribute and a remembrance -- and through music we bring to our attentions the really wonderful contributions all have made to music and to life."

The Perfect Fool: Ballet Music
ELGAR
Sea Pictures
Emily Marvosh, contralto
FRAZELLE
From the Air
STRAVINSKY
Firebird Suite (1919)



NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "The concept for this program originated with English composer Sir Edward Elgar's Sea Pictures for solo woman's voice and orchestra. These are exceptionally evocative songs about the sea from various poets' perspectives, not to mention the engaging voice and personality of our guest soloist Emily Marvosh. To balance so much time on the water, we find contrast with Stravinsky's Firebird and music of another Englishman (composer of the famous Planets), which has all of earth, water, and air. Elemental, my dear audience!"

A Story to Tell

BERNSTEIN
Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
RAVEL
Mother Goose Suite
rACHMANINOFF
Piano Concerto No. 2*
Max Levinson, piano



NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "What's the story? We all know that reams have been written about West Side Story's connection to Romeo and Juliet, and the movements in Mother Goose will remind us all of our own childhoods. The extraordinarily gifted pianist Max Levinson will be on hand to bring Rachmaninoff's beloved concerto to life -- a work whose themes have been used to tell many a story, from classic films to popular music."

*Due to unforeseen circumstances, please note repertoire change from Prokofiev Piano Concerto to Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto.

This season we're very pleased to feature Concertmaster Alice Hallstrom in Vivaldi's Four Seasons. This music has been around for more than 250 years and is still as fresh and popular as ever. We'll conclude the concert – and the season – with Tchaikovsky's charming collection of Italian folk songs, the 'Italian Caprice.'"
