Family Concert: Heroes’ Adventures
April 14, 2019 at 3:00 pm
Three heroes, three different journeys. Candide is travelling the world, learning bitter lessons about life through the series of increasingly bizarre adventures until he starts seeing the world as it truly is. Leonore, disguised as a man, undertakes a perilous journey to save her husband from an impending death. For good measure, she helps to overthrow a tyrant. Háry János is a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars. Back in his native Hungarian village, he spins fantastical stories that take him from the battlefields of Russia to the arms of the Empress of Austria.
Works Featured : Bernstein: Candide: Overture , Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 3, Spivack: Double Concertino for Timpani and Percussion, “When Professor Rhianini met Lorenzo Spuccini” and Kodály: Háry János Suite
We look forward to seeing you there!
