Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra: Mozart & Sibelius

Past event

Friday, November 3, 2017 (PDT) @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra

Bainbridge Performing Arts, Bainbridge Island, WA

Wesley Schulz, conductor
Oksana Ejokina, piano

Mazzoli – River Rouge Transfiguration
Mozart – Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491
Sibelius – En Saga, Op. 9
Sibelius – Finale from Symphony No. 2 in D major

The first concerts of the BSO’s 2017-2018 Season explore the music of Missy Mazzoli as well as Mozart and Sibelius. Mazzoli was inspired to write River Rouge Transfiguration after visiting Detroit in 2010 and learning about the River Rouge Plant. Mazzoli writes:

“This image, of the River Rouge Plant as a massive pipe organ, was the initial inspiration for River Rouge Transfiguration. This is music about the transformation of grit and noise into something massive, resonant, and unexpected. The ‘grit’ is again and again folded into string and brass chorales that collide with each other, collapse, and rise over and over again.”

Oksana Ejokina, piano, will join the orchestra for a performance of Mozart’s brilliant Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor. On the second half of the program, the orchestra enters the sonic world of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. En saga is one of his earliest tone poems and exhibits many hallmarks of his writing style, including growling brass and scurrying strings. The Finale of Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2 will bring the program to a majestic and exhilarating end.

Tickets: $21 adults / $18 seniors, students, military & teachers
