Program Info

  • CAROLINE SHAW: Entr’acte

  • BEETHOVEN: Triple Concerto

  • MOZART: Symphony No. 36, “Linz”

The Omaha Symphony’s Joslyn series is a chance to showcase the depth of talent the ensemble has to offer, and this program is no exception—Beethoven's Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano allows Associate Concertmaster Ahra Cho, Principal Cello Paul Ledwon, and Principal Keyboard Christi Zuniga to shine as soloists and as chamber musicians in front of the orchestra. First, however, is American composer Caroline Shaw’s Entr’acte, which was inspired by Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 77. Shaw notes that the music that inspired her own piece takes the listener to “the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.” Finally, Maestro Bahl leads the Orchestra in one of Mozart’s most hastily written masterpieces—his Symphony No. 36, “Linz” was written in just four days.

Join us for the Pre-concert Talk!

Before the concert, Kenneth Brummel, Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, sets the stage to experience American composer Caroline Shaw’s Entr’acte, by exploring the mysterious world of Kay Sage’s (American, 1898-1963) Men Working. This surrealist painting pairs well, as Shaw notes that the music that inspired her own piece takes the listener to “the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.” Join us to consider Sage’s ambiguous work.
