Classics III

Classical
Sarah Ioannides, conductor
Bella Hristova, violin
Smetana: Vltava “The Moldau”
David Ludwig: Violin Concerto
Mahler: Symphony No. 1 “Titan”
CLASSICAL INFLUENCES FROM BOHEMIA. Join us on a journey starting with the Moldau River and ending with classic folk melodies by Mahler. Smetana’s Vltava is a love letter to his homeland, depicting the flow of the river from the mountains of Bohemia, through the Czech countryside to the city of Prague. Bulgarian native Bella Hristova performs her husband David Ludwig’s Violin Concerto that he wrote for her at the time of their marriage. Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 is inspired by Jean Paul Richter’s novel, Titan, and reflects themes of his life and upbringing, including irony, skepticism and an obsession with death.

Classics IV

Classical
Sarah Ioannides, conductor
Pallavi Mahidhara, piano
Symphony Tacoma Voices (Geoffrey Boers, director)
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4
WORLD PREMIERE David Ludwig: Bleeding Pines
Beethoven: Fantasy for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra “Choral Fantasy”
LUDWIG AND BEETHOVEN. This celebration of piano and chorus features two Beethoven favorites and the world premiere of David Ludwig’s The Bleeding Pines. Despite being given the esteemed review as “the most admirable, singular, artistic and complex Beethoven concerto ever” after its premiere, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 was not performed again until it was revived by Felix Mendelssohn in 1836. The Bleeding Pines is an oratorio for singers, chorus, and orchestra based on a play by Ray Owen that tells the story of conservationist Helen Boyd Dull, who in 1904 saved an ancient stand of longleaf pines. Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” is based on his 1797 song Gegenliebe and concludes with a thrilling chorus melody which is a clear foreshadowing to the famed Ode to Joy melody written 16 years later.

Vivian Fung: Prayer
Richard Danielpour: From the Mountaintop
Schumann: Symphony No. 3 “Rhenish”
FROM THE MOUNTAINTOP TO THE RIVER. The works comprising this concert pay tribute to our collective sentiment through onerous times.

Inspired by the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., From the Mountaintop was written for Anthony McGill, principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic, and is filled with vivid sadness, happiness, prayerfulness, joy and the struggles and pain felt during the Civil Rights Movement.
