BRAHMS’ 1ST CONCERTO & STRAVINSKY’S FIREBIRD

Saturday, February 23, 2019
7PM

Norman Krieger, Piano

Johannes Brahms       Piano Concerto No. 1
Gioacchino Rossini     Overture to La Gazza Ladra
Igor Stravinsky            Firebird Suite

Maestro Savia brings back his good friend and colleague, American pianist Norman Krieger, to perform the intensely romantic and passionate Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1. The bubbly and effervescent Overture to Rossini’s La Gazza Ladra(The Thieving Magpie) is recognizable from being featured in Stanley Kubrick’s cult film A Clockwork Orange. Igor Stravinsky’s first ballet, Firebird, became an instant success after its premiere in Paris, and the Suite from the ballet remains his most popular orchestral work to this day. Experience the captivating score and mesmerizing story of a mystical bird with fiery red feathers. Powerful, mysterious, beautiful, and exhilarating, this music will take your breath away!

7PM

Women’s Chorus

Josef Strauss           Sphärenklänge (Music of the Spheres)
Claude Debussy       Clair de Lune
James Becke           From The Earth To The Moon and Beyond
Gustav Holst            The Planets  “Side-By-Side” with EPYO

A space-themed concert to commemorate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s 1969 moon landing! Indiana composer James Beckel wrote From The Earth To The Moon and Beyond especially for this occasion. Complete with narration and imagery, the piece celebrates one of mankind’s most incredible achievements. In an unprecedented educational collaboration, 150 members of the EPO and Evansville Philharmonic Youth Orchestra will join forces for an unforgettable performance of Gustav Holst’s The Planets. This blockbuster work sky-rocketed Holst to fame, and the climactic “Mars” movement inspired the music of Star Wars. Holst portrays the moods of the planets as serene and beautiful, flickering and flighty, mysterious and magical.
