This program explores the depth of the string orchestra literature, from Mozart's delightful Eine Kleine Nachtmusik to Mahler's probing Adagietto. Copland's Clarinet Concerto is both achingly sublime and full of sass. It's a dazzling tour de force for GCSO Principal Clarinetist J.C. Barker.
Classical guitar takes center stage in the exquisite acoustics of First Methodist. Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, with its famous 2nd movement, has become synonymous with soulful Spanish music. A playful symphony by Prokofiev and a youthful masterpiece from Beethoven frame this delightful evening.
