Program Notes & Works
Overture, The Consecration of the House
Though the piece is heard somewhat infrequently today, the brilliance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Consecration of the House Overture has made it singularly appropriate for new—and in this week’s case, revitalized—ventures.
Violin Concerto No. 2
John Williams wrote his Violin Concerto No. 2 for violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
Concerto for Orchestra
So well loved is Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra in all parts of the world that it is hard now to imagine the hostility that greeted his music in the period between the wars, and the horror his music inspired both in concert audiences and in critics who should have known better.
