Stars of the Future Concert
March 2, 2024 • STARS OF THE FUTURE
Rimsky-Korsakov Russian Easter Overture, Op. 36
Mozart Symphony No. 39 in E-flat Major, K. 543
String Concerto TBA: Performed by the winner of the Ann & Charles Eisemann International Young Artists Competition
Based on chants used in Russian Orthodox liturgy, Rimsky-Korsakov designed his overture as a carefully calculated explosion of orchestral color reflecting popular Russian feelings on this highest Christian feast. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, one of the final symphonic statements in his prolific career, stands apart in innovation, emotion, increased dissonance, and profound content.
