FOUR SEASONS (Golijov/Vivaldi/Piazzolla)

January 20, 2018 - January 21, 2018

Vivaldi was a master of his art in that he was capable of composing music which spoke more powerfully than words. The Four Seasons puts Vivaldi’s mastery on full display. For each season, there is a corresponding concertos which provides a vivid musical portrait. Argentina’s tango master, Astor Piazzolla took a different spin on this concept with his piece Four Seasons of Buenos Aires which exudes a distinct Latin flair. Mobile favorite Chee-Yun will be returning to perform these incredible works. Her first public performance was at the age…

TWO OF A KIND (Prokofiev/Haydn/Elgar)

February 24, 2018 - February 25, 2018

Music has a unique ability to bring people together from all walks of life. Elgar’s Enigma Variations is a literal testament to this fact. This piece is composed of 14 variations, each of which is a musical caricature of family members and friends, including his dog.

It requires a performing force which includes soloists and a chorus, which the composer directed should be deployed beyond the confines of the stage itself.

HOUSE RULE (Beethoven/Mozart/Shostakovich)

April 21, 2018 - April 22, 2018

The composition of Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony took place during the height of Soviet Union oppression in his homeland of Russia. Though he was a composer and not soldier, Shostakovich’s career was exploited to produce propaganda.  He had a successful opera condemned as unpatriotic and was forced to withdraw the premier of his 4th symphony for fear of punishment. Though the 5th Symphony is subtitled “A Soviet Artist’s Response to Just Criticism.”, the piece is undeniably laced with themes of both defiance and…
