Conquering New Lands
February 15, 2020 | Saturday, 7:30pm
Conductor's Talk at 6:30pm

Dvorak | Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191
—  Jennifer Kloetzel, Cello
Beethoven | Symphony No. 3 “Eroica” in E major, Op. 55

Czech composer Anton Dvorak was already world famous when he arrived in New York City in 1892. The “new world” inspired some of his best work, including one of the greatest cello concertos of all time. Our soloist, Jennifer Kloetzel, brings her robust, earthy tone to our stage in this magnificent piece. Beethoven’s compelling, expansive Third Symphony ushers in the Romantic era. Originally dedicated to the supposed liberator of Europe, Beethoven famously re-titled the monumental work “Sinfonia Eroica” when Napoleon, the conquering hero, turned tyrant.

Imagination Takes Flight

Conductor's Talk at 6:30pm

Joanna Marsh | Flare
Wagner | Flying Dutchman
Mussorgsky | A Night on Bald Mountain
Stravinsky | Complete Firebird

Soaring imagination inspires this program. Joanna Marsh’s dynamic “Flare” was commissioned for the first-ever BBC Proms in Dubai. Stravinsky burst onto the world stage with his first major commission for Serge Diaghilev. Completing the program are two towering works that embody the power and drama characteristic of Mussorgsky and Wagner – an evening to remember!
