Pre-concert Ensemble: Trumpet Quartet

Since its 1795 première, Joseph Haydn’s 103rd Symphony, nicknamed The Drum Roll after the long ominous timpani roll with which it begins, remains a favorite of his impressive output of 104 symphonies. Brilliantly constructed, the four-movement work culminates in an unflagging, energetic finale based on a single theme and filled with drama and excitement. The program also includes Johann Sebastian Bach’s masterful Orchestral Suite No. 4 and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 2.

REZNICEK: Overture to Donna Diana
SCHUMANN: Symphony No. 1″ Spring”
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3

The ASO’s 2018-2019 season concludes in April, featuring Rachmaninoff’s famed Piano Concerto No. 3 with Robert Schumann’s poetic Symphony No. 1 “Spring.” Heralded as one of the most technically difficult concertos in the modern repertoire, its notoriety expanded in pop culture with the release of the 1996 film, Shine, loosely based on the life of pianist David Helfgott. By contrast, Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 “Spring” was an early work in the composer’s repertoire, inspired by German poetry and expanding on the composer’s early songs for voice and piano.
