Mozart: Overture to The Marriage of Figaro
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 “Scottish”
A night of popular masterworks. We are very excited to bring virtuosa (and rising international celebrity) Luosha Fang back as a soloist — to perform Tchaikovsky’s well-loved Violin Concerto!
Featuring Luosha Fang, violin
Luosha Fang, from China, is the 2018 winner of the Tokyo International Viola Competition and the 2019 winner of the Vienna Classic Strings competition — a hotly burning star in the classical space. We are very excited to bring her back this season.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (1786) is a romping, comic opera — a sequel to the slapstick escapades of The Barber of Seville — and the overture foreshadows the coming mischief and “running amok” masterfully. (Imagine scheming servants and sneaking nobles while you enjoy the music!) Fellow composer Joseph Haydn liked it so much he told a friend “I hear it in my dreams.”
Peter (Pyotr) Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto (1878) is the only one he composed but, in it, he put a world of emotions.Tchaikovsky wrote this beautiful, vulnerable work shortly after fleeing an ill-fated marriage. In looking to bring beauty back into his world, he certainly brought it to ours.
Felix Mendelssohn was inspired to compose his Symphony No. 3 (1842) by a visit to the ruins of Holyrood Castle in Edinburgh (where Queen Mary had lived and been crowned). It took many years for Mendelssohn to complete this sweeping work — evoking wild, Romantic landscapes of “the North” — and is the final of his symphonies.
