Conductor Alondra de la Parra
Double Bass Edicson Ruiz
Mozart Symphony No.31 in D, K.297 Paris
Oscher Double Bass Concerto, World Premiere
Beethoven Symphony No.3 in E flat, Op.55 Eroica
Tonight, we’re all about revolution! Mozart’s three-movement template for the Paris Symphony may have been traditional but the striking inclusion of clarinets in the orchestra was a revolutionary first. Beethoven’s stormy, affirming Symphony No.3, meanwhile, was crammed with daring musical invention dedicated to Napoleon (although he scored out the dedication when Napoleon appointed himself Emperor) and its revolutionary orchestration inspired many generations of future composers. A highlight of this concert is the world premiere of Oscher’s lively and inventive Double Bass Concerto destined to leave the entire audience breathless!
