You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Thursday, February 8th and Saturday, February 10th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.
Mendelssohn used inspiration from his travels to Britain to develop the folk-like tunes and rhythms found in his famous “Scottish” symphony. Allene Hackleman, ESO Principal Horn since 2004, will be featured as the soloist for Mozart’s triumphant concerto, which he playfully (and mysteriously) wrote in black, red, green, and blue ink. Conductor Jessica Cottis champions the music of young Australian composer Connor D’Netto, whose 2020 piece was written with “gentle hope and burning determination” as the world began its recovery from the pandemic.
