The Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss in performances of two of his works, the Concerto for Horn No. 1 and Feierlicher Einzug. The first work is likely the result of growing up with a famous horn player at home, his father, and the latter work was composed in 1909 for ceremonial events held by the Knights of St. John. Debussy’s beautiful masterpiece L’aprés-midi d’un faune and Wagner’s extract from Tristan und Isolde will hold you spellbound with their innovative harmonies and rich orchestral tapestry. Bringing the season to a rousing conclusion is Gershwin’s jazzy Piano Concerto in F major. The program features Anne-Marie Cherry (horn) and Dr. Johan Botes (piano).
