Former SPCO Artistic Partner Douglas Boyd returns to conduct and collaborate with Principal Oboe Cassie Pilgrim on Richard Strauss’ virtuosic Oboe Concerto. “Short Stories”-Five Interludes for String Orchestra written by London Philharmonic Orchestra composer-in-residence Brett Dean tells atmospheric, abstract tales that are open to the listener’s interpretation. The program closes with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Symphony No. 39 which features a grand opening, energetic cascading lines and a mischievous ending.
