Octet: Schubert

“Tango and Tyrol”

Jed Gaylin, Conductor

Oswaldo Golijov: Last Round
Schubert Octet (chamber orchestra arrangement)

Argentine composer Oswaldo Golijov’s tribute to Astor Piazzolla––and therefore to tango––pulses with driving rhythm and languorous melody.  Its sexy urbanity contrasts completely with Schubert’s breathtaking lyricism of upper Austrian mountain airs and his jaunty peasant dances. Though written as an octet, Schubert’s marvel will be performed with chamber orchestra to honor his symphonic conception and scope.

Thursday, June 22: 7pm

“Starry Stories”
Jed Gaylin, Conductor
With Kimberly Reighley and Rong Tan
L’amant anonyme Overture, Symphony No. 2: Joseph Bologne
Concerto for Flute and Harp: Mozart

Two touchstone works by Mozart of tremendous depth, color, and expression form the pillars of this program. Bay Atlantic Symphony flutist Kimberly Reighley and harpist Rong Tan join us on this sumptuous concert for full orchestra. We open with a wonderfully textured overture by French Creole violin virtuoso and composer Joseph de Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges.
