César Franck wrote a hybrid symphony-symphonic poem when he penned his Symphony in D minor, his most enduring work for orchestra. The opening movement seems to ask a question with its three-note motive, and the final movement aims to answer it with both ebullience and sincerity. 

Composer Bright Sheng was lifted to national prominence by Leonard Bernstein and has received commissions from orchestras such as the Philadelphia Orchestra and Detroit Symphony. His orchestral setting, Black Swan, of Brahms’s Intermezzo in A major, Op. 118, No. 2 is moving and beautifully haunting.

Our soloist for this concert is bass trombonist David Krosschell, who will perform Eric Ewazen’s Concerto for Bass Trombone and Orchestra. Cast in three movements, the first movement is playful while the second is a sort of “song without words.” The finale will impress listeners with its power and drive as it soars to a riveting conclusion.
