Beethoven Coriolan Overture.

Composed to open the play written in 1804 by Joseph von Collin. The music summarizes the plot in which Roman General Gaius Marcius Coriolanus was expelled from Rome, went over to Rome’s enemy Volscian and led their army back to conquer Rome. His mother pleaded with him to not invade and he relented. Thus he became a traitor to both the Romans and the Volscians. Destroyed by himself, he fell on his sword.

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.

It took six years riddled with self doubt for Mendelssohn to compose what has become one of the most popular violin concertos of all time. His last concerto, it is filled with new compositional ideas for its time and is considered a must learn concerto for all violin soloists.

Adrian Anantawan.

A graduate of Yale, Harvard, the Curtis Institute of Music and a student of Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman, he is an extraordinary and accomplished violinist and musician. We are thrilled to have Adrian Anantawan join us this Sunday to play Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. He may not have a right hand, but he delighted an audience two weeks ago at Rockport’s Shalin Liu Performance Center as he demonstrated that it’s what you hear, not what you see, that counts.

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5.

He declared to his brother that he had come to the conclusion that the fifth Symphony was a failure. He even “feared his imagination had dried up, that he had nothing more to express in music.”

Today the fifth is one of the most popular symphonic works, full of drama and emotion with a gorgeous French horn solo and a thrilling ending which will raise folks out of their seats.

Traditionally, about 30% of attendees wait until the last week prior to a concert to order tickets and other folks simply come on the day of, and hope there will be seats. So far, we are about 25% ahead of expected sales for the upcoming concert this Sunday.

Just to be certain, why not buy your tickets now for the upcoming concert this Sunday, May 15, 2pm?
