Signature Concert 4: Anxious, Tender & Jaunty

March 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm March 13, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Anxious, Tender, and Jaunty. FCS Signature Concert 4

This concert is also available for Livestream on March 5th or Webcast replay on March 13th.

Written for hornist Joseph Leutgeb, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s melodious Horn Concerto No. 3 is a tender expression of their friendship. Felix Mendelssohn’s lively Symphony No. 4, Italian interprets his extensive travels in Italy. George Walker’s commission work for the new millennium, Tangents, has overtones of both anxiety and hope. “Jaunty” is the only way to describe Florence Price’s exuberant Suite of Dances.
