Classic Series I
Korngold: Violin Concerto, op. 35, D Major
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5
Guest Artists Ryu Goto, Violin
Symphonic music often comes to us in a variety of presentations, whether while watching a movie, hearing it in the concert hall, or even part of a television commercial. The end results are quite similar; they create an ambience that helps tell a story. Our first concert presents three different pictures or scenarios. What a great way of illustrating our music to you!
Finlandia: A new concept of “Tone Poem” is an overture styled piece that tells a brief story. Sibelius describes the oppression of the Finnish people, followed by the serenity of a hymn like theme, ending with a triumphal finish.
Korngold’s Violin Concerto is a departure from the composer’s Hollywood masterpieces of movie themes or soundtracks! A first venture in concert music, his violin concerto is three movements, ironically, all with themes similar to his past movie efforts.
Our Soloist tonight marks the wonderful return of Ryu Goto, violinist. Mr. Goto delighted our audience two years ago with the Max Bruch violin concerto, played on his Stradivarius violin. Mr. Goto’s delicate style makes the romantic themes of Korngold’s music come transcends the listener beyond the concert hall!
