Sat. July 21, 2012 – 7 p.m. – Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony
In just four minutes, the bustling Overture to The Marriage of Figaro sets the stage perfectly for the sophisticated and witty four act opera that is to follow. Written in a matter of hours just before the opera’s first performance, Mozart’s main concern appears to have been to give his audience an immediate indication of the opera’s pace, and of the hectic events of the ‘folle journée’ that they were about to witness. From the first instant, when this music stirs to life, to its sudden explosions of energy,the overture delights all who hear it. The SCSO’s own, William Connell presents Henri Tomasi’s thrilling Trombone Concerto. Though lasting only a little more than a quarter of an hour, it compacts into its three short movements a wide variety of ideas and effects. With a whole slew of influences, Tomasi’s Trombone Concerto is one of the most exciting and intoxicating Concertos from the 20th Century. Rachmaninoff ‘sSecond Symphony helped launch the career of this monumental pianist, composer and conductor. Few romantic works tug at the audience’s heartstrings more insistently than this intense work, with its seemingly endless flow of gorgeous melodies, passionate musical outbursts, luxuriant orchestral textures and kaleidoscopic moods, ranging from the exquisite melancholy of the adagio to the joyous exuberance of the finale. A musical experience on no account to be missed!
Sun. Aug. 12th, 2012 – 3 p.m. – Call of the Champions: Music of the Olympics
The Space Coast Symphony closes its Summer Series with Call of the Champions. This powerful program features music written for or about the Olympics. Many of the works fit nicely into the fanfare style that characterizes the opening ceremonies; others capture the solemnity of the occasion, culminating in the Olympic Oath. Taken together, they provide a soundtrack for the entire drama of the Olympic phenomenon. This captivating program will be presented with archival and news footage, original film, dramatic photo choreography, and several special surprises.
Winners will be selected and notified via email on Mon. July 9. Prize tickets will be held at will-call and you may get them the night of the concert.
Special thanks to the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra for the tickets and good luck everyone!
