GRAND ROMANTICS

Flato Markham Theatre for the Performing ArtsIn the tradition of grand romantic orchestral music, the KSO, under the direction of Maestro Kristian Alexander, performs a night of exceptional music.  Being his first successful opera, the Overture to Rienzi, was Wagner’s only opera composed in the “grand opera” tradition that featured extravagant ballets and pompous marches. A rare occurrence in concerto repertoire, Brahms highlights the violin and the cello in his “Double” concerto; his last orchestral work written to mend a broken friendship. Rounding out the program is Berlioz’ Harold en Italie: a picturesque Italian sojourn in four movements for symphony orchestra and solo viola.
