Join us for an evening celebrating Spring in the Northwest with our third Masterworks presentation.
Experience Antonín Dvořák's captivating "In Nature's Realm" Overture, Op. 91, composed in 1891. This piece is part of the "Nature, Life, and Love" trilogy with "Carnival Overture" and "Othello Overture" and eloquently depicts nature's beauty and vitality through lush orchestration, melodies, and shifting moods.
Don't miss the world premiere of Missoula composer Scott Billadaeu’s “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” based on a Robert Frost poem performed by the eclectic composer.
Vivian Fung’s Violin Concerto, played by violinist Kristin Lee, offers a multicultural exploration of orchestral colors, and Beethoven's "Pastorale" Symphony, Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, departs from his intense works, portraying nature's scenes and emotions. Innovations in orchestration and structure, along with evocative gestures, showcase Beethoven's mastery in exploring humanity's connection to the natural world.
