COPLAND Appalachian Spring Suite (version for 13 instruments)
MOZART Symphony No. 29

Join Music Director Ward Stare and your RPO for the premiere of our RPO @ Home Series! Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite begins the program. Despite its widespread popularity among orchestras, the original 1944 version was originally written for 13 instruments. Mozart’s Symphony No. 29, one of his better known early symphonies, blends the intimacy of chamber music with “a still fiery and impulsive manner.” (Stanley Sadie) 

Available October 22 – December 6, 2020

Ward Stare, conductor

JESSIE MONTGOMERY Starburst
WAGNER Siegfried Idyll
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 5

Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst opens the program. Gentle melodies are juxtaposed with dramatic gestures to create a unique and multidimensional soundscape. Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, a symphonic poem dedicated to the birth of his son, is one of his smallest works composed for a chamber orchestra. Completed six months after his Fourth Symphony, Schubert found inspiration in his Fifth Symphony through famed virtuoso, Mozart.

Available October 24 – December 8, 2020

DVOŘÁK Serenade for Winds in D minor
WALKER Lyric for Strings
HAYDN Symphony No. 45 in F-sharp minor, “Farewell”

Dvořák’s Serenade for Winds in D minor evokes the old-world atmosphere of music performed in the courts of the Rococo period. The first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize, George Walker’s Lyric for Strings blends lush harmonies with stark solo passages to create a dramatic and moving composition. Haydn’s “Farewell” Symphony concludes the program, a composition written as an appeal from court musicians to return their loved ones, with a surprising ending you don’t want to miss!

phony No. 45 “Farewell” concludes the program.
