Pre-Season String Orchestra Concert: Music of the Night
Saturday, Sep 15, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English
NWS string Fellows and dynamo conductor Eric Jacobsen capture nocturnal musings, from the eerie to the serene. The heart-pumping adrenaline radiating from contemporary American icon John Adams’ Shaker Loops makes it one of his most popular works. Channeling Wagner and Brahms, Arnold Schoenberg’s revolutionary pictorial gem reveals musical secrets in a series of chromatic confessions. Luigi Boccherini—Italy’s version of Haydn—transports audiences to the vibrant streets of Madrid, complete with tolling church bells, whispered prayers, military drum rolls and cellists as beggars, playing their instruments like guitars.
