Young People’s Concert: Symphony Spooktacular
Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Chia-Hsuan Lin - Orchestra Hall
Program Info: Music has an amazing way of affecting our mood. And here, the Orchestra reveals many “tricks” composers use to make music sound spooky. In Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King, variations in tempo and dynamics create the feeling of being chased by trolls; in Danse macabre, Saint-Saëns makes a xylophone sound like a skeleton rattling. This lively program, which features In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre, also includes mysterious or scary music by composers as varied as J.S. Bach, Modest Mussorgsky, Gabriela Lena Frank and John Williams—who is represented by a segment from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
