Our celebratory programs this summer open with music for winds by Stravinsky and Mozart, combining the classicism of the 18th and 20th centuries in a bubbly concert worthy of a champagne celebration. Oliver Knussen’s music for A.A. Milne’s beloved Winnie the Pooh will feature the stratospheric soprano Delaram Kamareh.
Continuing our anniversary party, we present an intoxicating program of night music from Salzburg and Mexico City. Gabriela Ortiz’s Baalkah conjures up the pre-Colombian world in a masterpiece which brings this past world to musical life, featuring soprano Ayana Haviv. The evening’s festivities open with one of Mozart’s most beloved works, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, and finishes with the erotic nocturnal work by Schoenberg, Verklärte Nacht.
Other highlights this summer include a commemoration of Benjamin Britten’s centennial with works for tenor and harp, combined with colorful compositions by Henze and Janácek. Music by Wagner, Reger and Brahms round out this 20th anniversary summer.
