Stravinsky, Rimsky-Korsakov

David BernardGuest Conductor

“Firebird” Suite (1919)


We welcome guest conductor David Bernard, music director of the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, and an internationally-recognized conductor, to lead the orchestra in a program dedicated to storytelling through musical tone painting. The brilliant orchestration and vivid colors brimming from Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite depicts a tale of a prince freeing his beloved from the spell of an evil spirit. Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade”, featuring the BSO’s co-concertmaster Hannah Finkelberg, depicts the powerful narratives of “The Arabian Nights”—including the alluring storyteller Scheherazade, shipwrecks, thieves and the bustling markets in ancient Baghdad—with a captivating combination of energy and passion.

Rossini, Bartok, Beethoven

Overture to “Semiramide” 

Viola Concerto
Hsin-Yun Huang, soloist

Symphony No. 7 in A

“Semiramide,” Rossini’s opera seria, begins with this riotously festive overture, containing one of Rossini’s most delightful “crescendo” passages. Bartok’s Viola Concerto, in the hands of celebrated soloist Hsin-Yun Huang, shows the composer’s feelings at the end of his life, the devastation of WWII, but also his profound love for the folk music of his native Hungary. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony ends this first program, the lilting masterpiece that Richard Wagner dubbed “the Apotheosis of the Dance.”
