Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra

Miao Liu, flute (Winner, 2017 Seattle Philharmonic Don Bushell Competition)
Adam Stern, conductor

Kuhlau – Overture, William Shakespeare, Op. 74
Gipps – Symphony No. 2 (US premiere)
Ibert – Concerto for Flute and Orchestra
J.S. Bach – Prelude and Fugue in E-flat, BWV 522, “St. Anne” (orch. by Frederick Stock)

The great German-born conductor Frederick Stock, who led the Chicago Symphony for nearly forty years, made a grand transcription of Bach’s mighty “St. Anne” Prelude and Fugue, presented at this concert thanks to the generosity and assistance of the Chicago Symphony’s Rosenthal Archive. The Philharmonic’s contribution to the 5th Avenue Theatre’s Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival is the “William Shakespeare” Overture by the early Romantic Danish composer Friedrich Kuhlau. English composer Ruth Gipps, inexplicably ignored in her homeland and abroad, is represented by the U. S. premiere of the second of her five fine symphonies. Finally, flutist Miao Liu will be heard in the virtuosic and lyrical Concerto for Flute and Orchestra by Jacques Ibert.
