Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Four composers evoke lands and eras other than their own in this colorful and alluring program. Johann Strauss, Jr. demonstrates his flair for writing music in something other than 3/4 time in his Egyptian March. Camille Saint-Saëns' gifts for beguiling melodies and rich orchestration are amply displayed in the Bacchanale from his opera Samson and Delilah. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular work, the grand symphonic poem Scheherazade, caps this musical voyage to distant realms and times.

Mahler’s famous song cycle, Songs of the Wayfarer, describes a young man wounded by unrequited love but finding comfort in nature. Mendelssohn’s third symphony commemorates the magical countryside of Scotland.
