Okay, those who chose to share their opinions informed me that not only do they indeed like my weekly BSO concert post, they believe I should expand it to include other concerts in the area. So let’s round ’em up like particularly melodious cattle. I tried to bold the most pertinent information for scanning purposes; do tell me if it makes you want to vomit.
- On October 1 & 2, both times at the Meyerhoff, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra offers “Tortelier Conducts Mozart,” conducted by Yan Pascal Tortelier, if you can believe it. Horacio Gutierrez hits the piano for a program that includes Sibelius’ fifth symphony, Mozart‘s Piano Concerto no. 19, and something by Elgar called In the South. See it!
- How about we start checking in with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center? From September 29 through October 1, Rafael Fuhrbeck de Burgos will conduct Beethoven‘s eighth symphony and Orff‘s greatest hit, Carmina Burana. A collection of vocalists including the Washington Choral Arts Society will be helping out with that. See it!
- @TerpsMusic informs me that the University of Maryland Wind Orchestra will be presenting a program entitled “Music of Prague” on September 29 & 30. Appropriately enough, the feature piece is Karel Husa‘s Music for Prague 1968, plus Robert Kurka‘s Suite from The Good Soldier Schweik and Lubos Fiser‘s Report. See it!
Are you in or do you know of a concert or other classical music event coming up next week that I should highlight in the roundup? Let me know!
