The music of archetypical French composer, Claude Debussy, and the music of archetypical German composers, Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, will be the highlights of this final program of the season. 

To open the program, the Orchestra will present Debussy’s evocative set of symphonic sketches, La Mer.  Like many French “Impressionistic” painters around the turn of the century, Debussy was captivated by nature in all its glorious and ever-changing transcendence. For Maestro Carlson, La Mer represents the very epitome of Impressionism in music. 

In contrast to this French masterpiece, the Orchestra will also present operatic extracts from the Germanic repertoire. Die Frau ohne Schatten Fantasy (The Woman without a Shadow) was extracted by Strauss from his opera by the same name. This Fantasy is not a readily accessible score, but in every respect it is typically Straussian.

To close the program, the Orchestra will perform excerpts from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods), the 4th and final opera of his Ring cycle based on a collection of Nordic myths. As in the February program, the powerful brass section of the orchestra will be fully utilized.
