Masterworks IV: The Stars Above & Sands Below

February 4 @ 2:00 pm

The creation of heaven and earth opens our homage to the natural wonders that surround us in Franz Joseph Haydn’s “The Depiction of Chaos” from The Creation. Take in the beauty and peace of space before feeling the gritty grains of sand shifting through your fingers in Mary Howe’s Stars and Sand. Be swept away by the cascading scenes of Michael Abel’s Liquify, featuring the premiere of KV 265’s accompanying film that fuses science and art. We continue downriver with the majesty of Bedřich Smetana’s beloved tone poem “The Moldau” before ending our journey with a stroll through the countryside on an unexpectedly stormy day in Beethoven’s “Pastorale” Symphony.PROGRAMFRANZ JOSEPH HAYDN Die Schöpfung, Die Vorstellung des Chaos (The Creation, The Depiction of Chaos) [7’]MARY HOWE Stars and Sand for Orchestra [7’]MICHAEL ABELS Liquify [10’]BEDŘICH SMETANA Vltava, “The Moldau” from Má Vlast [12’]LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 6, Op. 68, “Pastorale” [39’]FEATURINGMark Russell Smith, conductorTICKETSStart at $12 for Adults & $7 for Students/Children See less
