ROGER KALIA, CONDUCTOR

Legacies are not created in a single moment, but rather are the product of acts of creation, reception, and remembrance. Beethoven’s impact on music and his legacy can hardly be understated—his works continually challenged symphonic convention, while his persona has achieved mythic quality over the past 250 years. His Second Symphony, written at the onset of his deafness, honors the symphonic model while stretching its form and infamously substituting a scherzo for the traditional minuet and trio. American composer Jesse Montgomery’s Banner also engages with an iconic legacy—that of the United States national anthem. Described by the composer as “an anthem for the 21stcentury,” Banner pays tribute to its namesake, the Star-Spangled Banner, updating and adapting it to an orchestral medium with prominent quartet solos, performed here by the Eykamp String Quartet.

Dvořák   Carnival Overture
Paul Dooley   Northern Nights
Shostakovich   Symphony No. 5

The EPO concludes their Classics season with a program of triumph and celebration, featuring works by Dvořák, Paul Dooley, and Shostakovich. Dvořák’s Carnival Overture is a virtuosic and celebratory work followed by Paul Dooley’s ambitious electro acoustic percussion concerto Northern Nights. A festival of electronic dance music amid the California redwoods inspired the concerto, and there is a wonderful electronic and symphonic fusion in this engrossing 20-minute work. The EPO concludes the program with Shostakovich’s iconic Fifth Symphony. Shostakovich called the piece “a response to my critics,” as the symphony sprang forth during a time of tremendous oppression and conflict, leaving listeners to wonder whether the piece is a triumphant work of patriotism or a hidden note of subversion.
