Classical Gold - Visionary Masterpieces

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 | 7:30 pm
At Bartlesville Community Center

The Tulsa Symphony Orchestra
Daniel Hege, conductor • David Carter, clarinet

The works on this program literally shaped the future of music. Consider Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A, written just before his death in 1791. It is the height of his compositional innovation - a concerto with no cadenzas. Consider, too, Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F Major written in 1808, also known as the Pastoral Symphony. Among the first programmatic works written, each movement has a descriptive subtitle about his favorite countryside. Beethoven's Egmont Overture, possibly one of the first pieces written with political overtones, deals with the Dutch struggle for liberty against the imperial rule of Spain. There's a reason we are calling this concert Classical Gold.

Tickets: $45/$30/$15 Adults • $25/$15/$9 Students

Grand Finale Concert: A Return Voyage from Europe to the Americas

Saturday, June 18, 2016 | 7:30 pm
At the Bartlesville Community Center

The Tulsa Symphony Orchestra
Daniel Hege, conductor • Anne-Marie McDermott, piano

The Overture to La clemenza di Tito (The Clemency of Titus), rarely heard, it is now being reconsidered as a work of restraint, warmth and nobility. Next, the orchestra shares Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5 in D, called the Reformation Symphony, which honors the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession and includes a hymn tune. For OK Mozart, Mendelssohn's symphony is a reminder that this year's festival has experienced its own re-formation. Our voyage back to the Americas takes us first to Mexico where symphonic dance is alive with Arturo Marquez's Danzon No.2 for Orchestra. The work debuted in 1994 and remains one of the most frequently performed works for orchestra. Our final destination is New York where we pay tribute to our first 31 years of festivals with a return appearance by Anne-Marie McDermott playing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.

Tickets: $60/$40/$25 Adults • $30/$20/$9 Students
