Symphonic Serenade

**Rescheduled to the 21/22 season. Dates to be confirmed.**

What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • No strings attached: This program celebrates orchestral music for wind and brass instruments.
  • Stravinsky switched up the usual soloist-plus-full-orchestra piano concerto format, declaring: “Strings and piano, a sound scraped and a sound struck, do not sound well together; piano and winds, sounds struck and blown, do.”
  • Mozart’s Gran Partita serenade is longer than any of his symphonies. It’s also the piece in the 1984 movie Amadeus that prompts Mozart’s rival Salieri to proclaim, “It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God.”
