Bach to Bartók
Ward Stare, conductor
Tessa Lark, violin
BACH/WEBERN Ricercar No. 2 from Musical Offering
SCHOENBERG Five Pieces for Orchestra
BERG Violin Concerto
BARTÓK Concerto for Orchestra
The program opens with Webern’s arrangement of Bach’s Ricercare No. 2 from Musical Offering. Then, violinist Tessa Lark makes her RPO debut as soloist in Berg’s Violin Concerto; although dedicated to “the memory of an angel,” the piece may very well be a requiem for the composer himself. Schoenberg’s Five Pieces for Orchestra mirror the expressionist movement of the times, particularly its preoccupation with the subconscious.
Join us for a FREE pre-concert chat, located in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, one hour before the concert as conductor and guest artist(s) discuss the program.
