Magnificent Mozart

SAT, OCTOBER 1, 2016 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Every musical form that Mozart touched became a supreme masterpiece, as this program makes clear. From orchestral gems to transcendent works for voice to beloved concertante pieces, this all-Mozart evening has it all.

Guitar Treasures

SAT, NOVEMBER 12, 2016 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Saturday Masters Encore
From the daring, war-inspired Concierto del Sur of Manuel Ponce to the pop-influenced Concerto de Dance Hits of Aaron Jay Kernis, this concert displays the classical guitar’s extraordinary range of expression.

“Emperor” Concerto

SAT, JANUARY 28, 2017 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Saturday Masters Encore
Two triumphant works that emerged from wartime occupation are featured on this eclectic program, combining the power of Beethoven’s immortal “Emperor” Concerto with Albéric Maynard’s romantic Fourth Symphony.

“Pathétique” Symphony

SAT, FEBRUARY 25, 2017 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Saturday Masters Encore
Master orchestrator and composer Gustav Mahler fused movements from two Bach suites into a romantic orchestral suite. It is matched with Tchaikovsky’s passionate, anguished final symphony, the “Pathétique,” and the beautiful organ concerto of Francis Poulenc.

Tchaikovsky & Sibelius

SAT, MAY 13, 2017 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Saturday Masters Encore
Alexander Prior has electrified ESO audiences with his interpretations of northern European composers. Stirring and evocative symphonies by Jean Sibelius and Rued Langgaard, paired with Tchaikovsky's brilliant Violin Concerto featuring the ESO debut of the sensational young Simone Porter, promise another exciting experience.

Carmina Burana

SAT, JUNE 17, 2017 AT 8:00PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre

Saturday Masters Encore
Carl Orff’s cantata was intended to be an exploration of medieval poetry, but has become one of the iconic works for chorus and orchestra. It makes a suitably powerful conclusion to the 2016/2017 Masters series and is joined by works from two of the ESO’s former Composers in Residence, including a brand new Trumpet Concerto by John Estacio.
