JENNIFER BELLOR 898 Hildegard - Premiere

SCHUMANN Overture, Scherzo and Finale, Opus 52

BRAHMS A German Requiem, Opus 45

EVOCATIVE, POETIC AND LIFE-AFFIRMING, this powerful program begins with the premiere of Las Vegas resident Jennifer Bellor’s 898 Hildegard, a piece for orchestra and chorus that intertwines excerpts from the medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen’s chants “O Vis Eternitatis” and “O Gloriosissimi Lux Vivens Angeli.” Robert Schumann attained the elusive union of music and poetry, an ultimate goal of the Romantic era artist. His music abounds with quick mood changes, tumult, profound statements, and touching delicacy, all of which is found in the Overture, Scherzo and Finale. Championed by Schumann, Johannes Brahms’ immensely popular German Requiem is a consoling and comforting piece, providing solace to all that hear and perform it. The Las Vegas Master Singers, UNLV Concert Singers & Chamber Chorale, along with soloists Alisa Jordheim and Will Liverman join forces with your symphony orchestra to deliver a stirring performance.

Cabrera Conducts Bruckner - May 27, 2017

SATURDAY, May 27, 2017 – 7:30pm

Pre-concert conversation at 6:30pm in Reynolds Hall

Donato Cabrera, conductor Liam Boisset, oboe

MOZART Overture to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), K620

STRAUSS, R. Concerto for Oboe and Small Orchestra

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 6

THEATRICS AND DARING abound in this hearty program featuring an overture from Wolfgang Amadeus’ last opera, Richard Strauss’s only concerto for oboe and Anton Bruckner’s awe-inspiring sixth symphony. The overture to Mozart’s final opera, The Magic Flute, opens the performance with dramatic flair. Rising star, Liam Boisset will make his debut playing Richard Strauss’s autumnal, Oboe Concerto, famously inspired by conversations between the aging composer and a young U.S. soldier, an oboist, at the end of WWII. The evening concludes with Anton Bruckner’s magisterial Symphony No. 6, one of the only symphonies that remained unchanged by the composer. This glorious symphony is a poignant way to finish our 18th season - the 1899 premiere was conducted by none other than Gustav Mahler, who was in the midst of composing his Symphony No. 4 at the same time.
