The season opens with traditional favorites by Strauss and Schumann along with a seldom-performed work by Rimsky Korsakov. The February and May concerts offer the pairings of two Sinfonia Concertantes by Mozart. The first is a very familiar work featuring violin and viola as soloists while the May concert includes a less known Concertante with oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn as soloists. Three works on the February concert share the theme of the sea, and I am especially looking forward to leading Korngold's music written for the 1950 film The Sea Hawk. the May concert presents the Minnesota Premiere of a new work by Julia Adolphe as well as the thrilling second symphony of Carl Nielsen. Come celebrate with us as we embark on our 63rd season of playing orchestral music in our community.
