Across the Centuries

The Eureka Symphony season begins with a musical journey across nine centuries. George Frideric Handel’s Water Music Suite #2, composed in 1717 for a royal jaunt on the Thames, is followed by Rainbow Body, by Christopher Theofanidis, which transports a melody by the 12th century mystic composer Hildegard of Bingen to the 21st century. The evening closes with Niels Gade’s Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Opus 14. Gade is recognized as a preeminent musician of the 19th century, during what is known as the Danish Golden Age.

Let the Drama Begin

There is no more dramatic opening to a concert than Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, highlighting Beethoven’s admiration the figure of the Dutch Count of Egmont and his dramatic stand against oppression. The overture is followed by Mozart’s majestic 35th symphony, known as the Haffner. The evening ends with Tchaikovsky’s stunning Piano Concerto No. 1 in B♭ minor, Op. 23, performed by the brilliant pianist Alexander Tutunov.

Distinctive Voices

Discover the sounds of Andalusia with España, Rhapsody for Orchestra by the 19th century French composer Emmanuel Chabrier, then cheer for a concerto played by the winner of the Eureka Symphony’s Young Artist Showcase. The concert concludes with William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 2 in G minor (Song of a New Race). Contrasting this work with his first symphony, the Afro-American, Still said its expansive harmonies show the world “a totally new individual.”

A Study in Contrasts

The season finale opens with Dmitri Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 2 in C-sharp minor, Op. 129, played by the Eureka Symphony’s incomparable concertmaster, Terrie Baune. His final concerto, Shostakovich’s work is wry, complex and fascinating. The season concludes with Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 (From the New World). Written in Spillville, Iowa and premiered in New York in 1893, the New World Symphony is a beloved celebration of Dvořák’s time in America.

7:30 p.m. at the Arkley Center

Musical Notes

Enjoy even greater appreciation for Music Director/Conductor Carol Jacobson’s musical selections by attending Musical Notes at 6:30 p.m. before each concert. Hosted by Concertmaster Terrie Baune with help from John Chernoff and special guests, this pre-concert talk is an informal and informative way to learn about the composers and pieces to be played that evening. You’ll learn enthralling facts about the music and the era of each piece, plus hear from guest artists who share their background and insights into the music they will perform.

There is no assigned seating for these talks, so you can be as close to the stage as you wish or experiment by sitting in different sections of the beautiful Arkley Center for the Performing Arts. Again, Musical Notes now begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts about half an hour, leaving you time to stretch your legs and find your assigned seat before the concert begins.
