Redwood Symphony To Present Three Masterworks on Feb. 22

Our first program of 2020 opens with one of Bach's most popular works, Brandenburg Concerto #4, featuring three soloists from the Redwood Symphony: Danny Coward, violin, and Lisa DiTiberio and Patricia Harrell, flutes.

Maestro K remarks: “Bela Bartok spent a lifetime attempting to fuse Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary influences into a grand whole, overlaid by Balkan and Middle Eastern idioms. He achieves perfect synthesis in Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, scored for two string orchestras.”

“Well-known for its use in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, this rarely-performed masterpiece is considered one of the greatest works of the 20th century. Besides dazzling formal concision, it also possesses a shattering emotional power that culminates in an explosive finale.”

We close the program with a 21st Century work that has grown exponentially in popularity, Max Richter’s re-composition of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, performed by violinist Claudia Bloom. “Richter transforms the original but allows the gorgeous themes to shine through,” said Maestro K who will give a free pre-concert talk at 7p.m.
