NH Music Festival: Wolfeboro Opening night, Metamorphoses
Our season begins with three familiar composers. The Wagner is festive and establishes the beautiful sonority of the orchestra. Mozart’s 5th Violin Concerto is his greatest and is a perfect contrast to the bombast of the Wagner Prelude. The Hindemith is jovial, colorful, energetic and exciting, and the brilliant Tchaikovsky races to a breathless conclusion.
Wagner: Prelude to Die Meistersinger
Mozart: Violin Concerto #5
Chee Yun: Violin
Hindemith: Symphonic Metamorphoses on themes of Weber
Tchaikovsky: Capriccio Italien
