Signature Concert 5: Intense, Playful & Serene
May 14 @ 7:30 pm – May 22 @ 2:00 pm
This concert is also available for Livestream on May 14th.
Chen Yi’s intense, high-spirited, and hopeful composition, Ge Xu (Antiphony), is a tribute to Southern China’s Zhuang minority people and their celebratory song styles. Claude Debussy accesses playful emotions in Children’s Corner, dedicated to his young daughter and her favorite toys. He turns to an impressionistic sensuality in his tone poem Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun. Finally, Robert Schumann expresses both the tenacity and serenity of earth’s annual awakening in Symphony No. 1, Spring.
