American Virtuosos

This program opens with Samuel Barber’s Medea’s Meditation and Dance of Vengeance.

As the program expands we’ll hear from a young artist whose technique has been described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “ poised and monstrously talented.” Benjamin Beilman brings his passionate performance to a Violin Concerto by Higdon; a work awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Music and packed with dialogue between the violin and the orchestra.

The final piece, Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 remains one of the composer’s most popular works. The emotional depth of the piece explores the “spirit of man” with a quality that is both uplifting and encouraging.

Classical Contrasts with Bassoonist Jack Peña

We return to the roots of our classical traditions with three different masterworks that are strikingly diverse in nature. Both versatile and energetic, guest conductor Nicholas Hersh will lead the LPO in this classical program which features, Prokofiev’s “Classical” to start with. The work, which consists of four movements is dapper and sleek with both flashing notes and graceful melodies.

Ciranda das sete notas follows, spotlighting the LPO’s own Principal Bassoonist, Jack Peña. Peña’s solo work will display the acoustic style of the bassoon with a dark charisma that radiates a dimensional character of both sadness and joy. Combined with the spirited virtuosity of the solo instrument and the strength of the piece – this concert is sure to provide the listener with an adventurous experience.

No better way to end this exemplary performance, than to take on Haydn’s “Drumroll.” A favorite among the composer’s symphonies, this work is as enchanting as it is playful and sweet.
