JoAnn Falletta Conducts Haydn
This performance replaces Beethoven’s Emperor, originally scheduled Saturday, February 20, and Sunday, February 21.
*Originally titled “Dramatic Reflections”
Composed as a memorial to his countryman, Arensky’s lyrical work reinvents a theme from Tchaikovsky’s “16 Songs for Children,” while fellow compatriot Shostakovich prophesied his chamber piece, colored by the WWII destruction of Dresden, would be his requiem. The program concludes with the yearning of Haydn’s dissonant and dramatic Symphony No. 44.
