Stow Symphony Orchestra Opens 15th Season Saturday
Concert will feature works by Bruckner, Debussy, Sibelius and Beethoven.
Opening the concert will be Anton Bruckner’s “Overture in G Minor.” One of the few Bruckner works suitable for a smaller orchestra, it has been described as “the overture to the mature Bruckner.”
Two more intimate works will follow:
- Debussy’s "Clair de lune," the third and most famous movement from his “Suite bergamasque.” The translation of its title is “a quiet and lovely piece evocative of ‘moonlight.’”
- Jean Sibelius’ “Valse Triste” (“sad waltz”). This familiar and haunting work will be conducted by Alexander Popovici, the newly appointed assistant conductor of the Stow Symphony who is currently studying in the music department at Kent State University.
Ludwig von Beethoven’s stirring “4th Symphony in B-flat Major” will round out the program. Hector Berlioz described the 2nd movement as “the work of the Archangel Michael, and not that of a human.”
Tickets for the concert, available in limited numbers at the door, are priced at $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and students. Children under age 12 are admitted free.
Tickets are available for pre-sale on the Stow Symphony’s website or by calling 330-678-0029. For group rates call 330-678-0029.
