A String Serenade
This performance replaces Verdi’s Requiem, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 7, and Sunday, November 8.
As the first African American to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music (1996), it is fitting that George Walker’s Lyric for Strings is included on a program of works brimming with inspiration. Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro is brilliant and virtuosic, Handel’s Harp Concerto No. 6, played by principal harpist Madeline Olson, lends the harp a delicate magic, and Bach’s Air is celestial with the instantly-recognizable second movement of his Baroque masterpiece. JoAnn Falletta conducts.
