SPCO Artistic Partner Richard Egarr returns to escort us on a musical journey that contrasts darkness and light. The overture to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved opera, “The Magic Flute”, calls upon the power of truth, love and beauty to conquer the darkness while “The Unanswered Question”, Charles Ives’ riddle-like work, features a contemplative trumpet solo asking the “eternal question.” “The Great Major C”, Franz Schubert’s monumental symphony begins reverently before being enriched with many moments of ecstatic joy. Fans of brass will love this fanfare-filled program!
Our Express Concerts are 60-75 minutes of music without intermission. Learn more at thespco.org/express.
