South Florida Symphony Orchestra returns with Naumberg Competition winner, Tessa Lark, to perform Korngold’s lush Violin Concerto. Also featured in the program is Strauss’ rumbling giant, the 22-bar opening of his Also sprach Zarathustra; and local composer, Tom Hormel’s world premiere of The Legend of Bird Mountain.
South Florida Symphony Orchestra opens this energetic and passionate program with Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Snow Maiden Suite. For the first time, SFSO will also perform Nielsen’s 5th Symphony which is considered his best work in this form. The music itself clearly defines a drama of energy and release, obsession and insistence. Internationally acclaimed pianist Svetlana Smolina once again joins the Symphony from her world tour to perform Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2.
South Florida Symphony is a member of an international consortium of orchestras co-commissioning a work written for returning pianist Jeffrey Biegel by composer/satirist Peter Schickele’s fictitious 18th Century alter ego, P.D.Q. Bach’s Concerto for VERY Grand Piano and Orchestra. The SFSO is also proud to present the world premiere of Tom Hormel’s The Legend of Bird Mountain. Hormel’s work opens the concert and Tchaikovsky’s fateful 5th Symphony’s brilliant fortissimos bring the season to a broad majestic finale.
