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.
