Masterworks Concert: The Sun Takes Reign
June 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm
The QSO will send you off to your summer adventures with the program celebrating all that is good about the season. We will visit, through music, a historic estate in Washington, D.C., as well as a sunlit French countryside. The cheerful concerto for oboe – the perfect pastoral instrument – will prepare us for the final symphony written by Mozart. Nicknamed “Jupiter” after the Roman god of sky and thunder, this king of all classical symphonies is worthy of its moniker.
Works Include: Honegger: Pastorale d’été, Stravinsky: Dumbarton Oaks concerto, Vivaldi: Oboe Concerto in C Major featuring Gabe Young, oboe, and Mozart: Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter” (31’)
Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
