Sound and Fury

Borrowing from himself, Haydn’s Symphony No. 60, “Il Distratto,” exudes all the warmth, good humor, and comedy of errors found from its original source, a play called The Absent-Minded Gentleman.

Program Info

  • JOSEPH HAYDN: Symphony No. 60, “Il Distratto”

  • JAN SANDSTRÖM: Wahlberg Variations

  • ANNA CLYNE: Sound and Fury

  • ALBERTO GINASTERA: Variaciones Concertantes

Delving into the velvet sound world of low brass, Principal Trombone Patrick Pfister and Sandström’s Wahlberg Variations centers a program featuring the best of multiple centuries of music. Haydn’s delightful “Il Distratto” not only opens the program, but it also inspired British composer phenom Anna Clyne’s Sound and Fury, along with another theatrical extreme: Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Ginastera’s Variaciones Concertantes is a true showcase for the entire orchestra, each variation a highlight of a different musician or section.
