ESO – Beyond the Horizon

January 19th 7:30 pm

 

ENGLISH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Kenneth Woods

with April Fredrick (soprano)

Eleanor Alberga – Jupiter’s Fairground
Antonín Dvořák – Song to the Moon from Rusalka
Samuel Barber – Knoxville: Summer of 1915
W. A. Mozart Symphony 41 ‘Jupiter’

The ESO’s ‘Music for Humans’ Season continues with a programme that explores music’s power to capture and share moments of happiness, acts of love and kindness and feelings of common purpose and security. At the heart of this programme is Samuel Barber’s masterpiece, ‘Knoxville: Summer of 1915’, his setting of a prose poem by James Agee, sung by soprano April Frederick, who is also the soloist in Dvorak’s famous ‘Song to the Moon’ from the opera Rusalka. The concert opens with Eleanor Alberga’s Overture Jupiter’s Fairground, composed in 1991 and ends with Mozart’s ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, written almost exactly 200 years earlier.
