One of Beethoven's favorite sayings was: "The morning air has gold to spare." Music Director Nathalie Stutzmann leads the Orchestra in Beethoven's ode to the wonders of the outdoors, his Sixth Symphony, subtitled "Pastorale Symphony, or a recollection of country life."
Rounding out the program are two other alluring Classical-era masterpieces: Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is well-known among soloists and audiences alike, showcasing the composer's gift for melody and his deep emotional expressivity. Meanwhile, the overture to Mozart's The Magic Flute is a delightful introduction to the composer's beloved opera, full of energy, wit and charm.
