Annapolis Symphony Orchestra conducted by José-Luis Novo - Maryland Hall
Program Info: Annapolis Symphony Orchestra José-Luis Novo, conductor James Ehnes, violin
Korngold’s Violin Concerto is the late work of a prodigy that defies any suggestion that its composer lost his flair once his brilliant childhood was past. Part of the rich Viennese tradition, Korngold, famous for elevating the Hollywood film score to a high art, expected great artists to be endowed with a complete command of their technical resources and richly expressive. Grammy-winning violinist James Ehnes is sure to meet these expectations. Wagner famously espoused that after Beethoven’s Ninth the symphonic form could not be bettered. Camille Saint-Saëns with his Third Symphony said not so fast. His “somber and agitated” first movement and tranquil adagio leave you unprepared for the thundering finale announced by the organ roaring to a grand and glorious conclusion.
Michael-Thomas Foumai - World Premiere Erich Wolfgang Korngold - Concerto for Violin in D major, op. 35, the concerto has themes from the scores for the movies ANOTHER DAWN (1937), ANTHONY ADVERSE (1936) & THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER (1937) Camille Saint-Saëns - Symphony No. 3 in C minor, op. 78 “Organ”
