European Tour Farewell Concert

European Tour Farewell Concert

We’re heading to Europe! Come cheer us on our way with a gala program featuring music from the luscious Romantic sound world of Vienna.

Korngold’s Violin Concerto and Mahler’s Fifth Symphony is no accidental pairing. There’s a woman behind it all. Mahler’s Fifth is one of his most popular symphonies and no wonder: it embraces a world of emotion from its funeral march opening to an ecstatic finale. In the middle is the famous Adagietto for strings and harp, a declaration of love to his wife Alma. Korngold’s Violin Concerto was also dedicated to Alma (by that time Alma Mahler-Werfel). It belongs to the next generation but it’s the music of an exile recalling a lost world, and if it feels familiar, it’s because Korngold borrowed from some of his 1930s Hollywood film scores (The Prince and the Pauper and Anthony Adverse among them). An exhilarating overture by Dvořák raises the curtain on a delectable concert.
