Spokane Symphony Masterworks 2: Garden Romance
Saturday, October 5 at 8pm
Sunday, October 6 at 3pm
Doors open 90 minutes before the concerts.
JAMES LOWE, CONDUCTOR
ROBERT BELINIĆ, GUITAR
Celebrate love with one of the great works of the guitar repertoire, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez. The blind composer drew his inspiration from “the fragrance of magnolias, the singing of birds, and the gushing of fountains” in the palace gardens of Aranjuez. The concerto’s lush romanticism contrasts with the timeless purity of Satie’s Gymnopédies. Robert Schumann admired Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 for its lightness and grace, but what made it popular with most 19th century Romantics was the force of its tragic power and emotional complexity, from its pulsing opening and poignant Andante to its exuberant finale.
Dmitri Shostakovich — Suite for Variety Orchestra No. 1
Joaquin Rodrigo — Concierto de Aranjuez
Erik Satie — Gymnopédies No. 1 & 3
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — Symphony No. 40
Come early for a pre-concert talk one hour before each performance. Doors open 90 minutes before the concerts.
