Baroque Fireworks

This performance replaces Winter Dreams, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6.

Baroque is front and center as JoAnn Falletta conducts Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks with its iconic and lavish score, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6, and Marcello’s Oboe Concerto in C minor played by principal oboist Henry Ward, which echoes the lyricism of an aria. Your BPO Brass plays an exciting work by the influential 16th century organist Giovanni Gabrieli, and Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, a delicate musical love letter to his new wife on her Christmas birthday, complete this Baroque program.
