Heidelberg Symphony: Sanctuary

March 24, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Christopher Kopke | Conductor
Guest Artist: Anne Gilby | OboeSaint-Säens Bacchanale from Samson & Delilah
Ketèlbey Sanctuary of the Heart
Haydn Oboe Concerto in C Major
Bellini Oboe Concerto in Eb Major
Copland The Tender Land Suite
Bernstein Slava! A Political Overture 

Ketèlbey’s Sanctuary of the Heart is based on an old melody used as the traditional chant for the Kol Nidrei during the Jewish liturgy. Saint-Säens’ Bacchanale is a percussion-driven, celebratory dance from Samson & Delilah, the only one of his operas still regularly performed.

Haydn’s Oboe Concerto has many long phrases, requiring dexterity and stamina from the soloist. The lyrical writing in Bellini’s Oboe Concerto is so indicative of his style that one could easily believe it to belong to one of his operas.

Copland’s The Tender Land Suite is a simple story of a young woman’s coming of age, richly painted with his quintessential American harmonies. Finally, in celebration of Bernstein’s Centenary this year, Slava! A Political Overture is a vaudevillian razzamatazz tune, filled with amazing modulations and sliding trombones.
