Overture to Benvenuto Cellini
TCHAIKOVSKY
Piano Concerto No.1 in B-flat Minor, Op. 23

Symphony No.6 in D Major, Op. 60

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "What an exciting way to begin the season! Three unrelated composers whose works complement each other, from Tchaikovsky’s timeless piano concerto, to the dramatic, even jubilant symphony of Dvorak, and all beginning with the dashingly brilliant colorizations of Hector Berlioz’s overture. Our terrific guest artist, Yun-Chin Zhou, is a ‘pianist with an original character, insightful musicianship, breathtaking technique, and best of all, true joy in playing,’ says The Huffington Post."

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "The year 2017 is particularly full of important anniversaries for classical music. Beginning 300 years ago with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, we traverse history through a compilation of entertaining symphonic works by Rossini, Johann Strauss, Jr. (the ‘Waltz King’!), and Respighi. Concluding the program is a 100th anniversary – Szymanowski’s exceedingly expressive violin concerto, featuring the astonishing Robyn Bollinger, an internationally recognized young artist on the rise."

MOZART
Overture to La Clemenza di Tito
MOZART
Sinfonia Concertante
Alice Hallstrom, violin
Peter Sulski, viola
MOZART
'Posthorn' Serenade No. 9, K. 320


NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "What more can we say about Wolfie?  We all know him as ‘Amadeus,’ but now, some 250+ years after his birth, Wolfgang Amadé Mozart is still recognized as one of the truly great genius composers ever to set foot on this earth.  His Sinfonia Concertante -- featuring our Concertmaster Alice Hallstrom and Co-Principal Viola Peter Sulski -- is part-symphony, part-concerto and richly beautiful in its interplay of soloists and orchestra.  Also on the program is Mozart’s significant and important “Posthorn” Serenade, and the overture to his very last opera."

WEBER
Overture to Der Freischutz
AMRAM
Greenwich Village Portraits
Kenneth Radnofsky, saxophone
PROKOFIEV
Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, Op. 100



NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "American composer David Amram is truly a legend in his own time:  composer, conductor, French hornist, pianist, drummer, ethnomusicologist, raconteur – and that’s only the beginning! He and guest soloist Kenneth Radnofsky have had a 35+ year musical collaboration that has resulted in some very important classical works. I have been fortunate to join that collaboration from time to time, so the three of us are excited to perform the World Premiere of David’s Greenwich Village Portraits for Saxophone and String Orchestra.  David’s unique spirit celebrates three of his own muses from the Village, in styles expressive, commemorative, and soulful!"

NOTES FROM MAESTRO HANGEN: "National Women’s Month is celebrated here performing music only by women composers! Taking our cue from Anna Beer’s book, ‘Sounds and Sweet Airs – The Forgotten Women of Classical Music,’ the program features Felix Mendelssohn’s sister, Robert Schumann’s wife, and several others, including two women from Boston. Really delightful, romantic, wistful, expressive, and joyful music abounds in this concert of composers unfamiliar to most listeners. The brilliant multi-talented Janice Weber is guest pianist."
