Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra

Adam Stern, conductor

Grainger – Spoon River
Mitropoulos – Tafi (2nd US performance; West Coast premiere)
Satie – Entr’acte (with film by René Clair)
Sibelius – Two Serious Melodies for Cello and Orchestra, Op. 77
Respighi – The Pines of Rome

The first three decades of the 20th century yielded numerous musical riches. The Philharmonic will present one of the most enduring of these, Respighi’s The Pines of Rome, as the climax to a concert featuring five of the century’s most distinctive composers from five different countries. The program will include a screening of René Clair’s delightful surrealist film Entr’acte, with Erik Satie’s original music performed live by the Philharmonic. A folksong arrangement by Percy Grainger, a symphonic poem by the 19-year-old Dimitri Mitropoulos (later known as one of the 20th century’s most important conductors), and two haunting rarities for cello and orchestra by Sibelius with soloist Mara Finkelstein round out this unique program.
