Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra: Opposites Attract
02/25/2017 07:30 PM - 02/25/2017 09:30 PM

Add to Calendar 02/25/2017 07:30 PM 02/25/2017 09:30 PM Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra: Opposites Attract Maestro Darko Butorac takes the stage to deliver a program of considerable contrasts. Excerpted from Verdi's tangled tale, La forza del destino, the overture introduces multiple melodies from the charming Italian opera. Soloists Jasmine Lin and Matthew Lipman, who both hail from the Chicago Southland, appear together on Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, which is considered one of his early masterpieces. This work features unusually rich symphonic texture and is a study in contrasts with the viola tuned a semi-tone higher than normal. On the program's second half, Maestro Butorac says of Prokofiev's fifth symphony, "This is a work of incredible positive energy written during one of the darkest periods of human history, deeply affected by the Second World War." Even while knowing its dark roots, your spirit cannot help but soar as you listen to "A hymn to the free and happy man." Maestro Darko Butorac currently serves as the Music Director of the Tallahassee and Missoula Symphony Orchestras and is the Principal Conductor of the Fidenza Opera Festival in Italy. ipomusic.org/index.php/february-25-2017.html 21701 Gougar Rd, New Lenox, IL 60451, USA

All three of these works were written in America, but by composers of diverse backgrounds. The American-born Copland's Buckaroo Holiday instantly conjures up images of the historical American West, while virtuoso double bassist Edgar Meyer's captivating and touching Violin Concerto marries an earthy, folk-like feel with toe-tapping contemporary rhythms. Dvorak's Ninth Symphony, written during his American sojourn, embodies the inspiration he found in African-American spirituals and American Indian legends, as well as the musical heritage of his Czech homeland and the German symphonic tradition. Kentucky-born Tessa Lark joins the IPO for Meyer's Concerto. Maestro Sean Newhouse is the winner of the Aspen Conducting Prize and is the former Associate Conductor of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Music Director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra. ipomusic.org/index.php/april-8-2017.html 1800 Lincoln Hwy E, New Haven, IN 46774, USA
