Mendelssohn: Sinfonia no. 10
Dvorak: Serenade for Strings
We close our season in grand style with William Grant Still’s reflective Out of Silence, followed by Mendelssohn’s Sinfonia no. 10. We end with one of Dvorak’s most popular orchestral works – Serenade for Strings.”
Our season finale, like our opening concert of the season, celebrates the beauty of the orchestra with some of the most glorious string music of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Antonin Dvorak’s Serenade is one of the most celebrated works for strings. William Grant Still’s haunting and meditative Out of the Silence is the perfect reflection of a challenging year. And Mendelssohn’s remarkably mature Sinfonia no. 10 came to life when the composer was just 14 years old; it heralds the superb composer yet to come.” – Scott Speck, music director
