2013/2014 SEASON - DUKE ENERGY MORNING MASTERWORKS
FRIDAYS IN ST. PETERSBURG - 3 CONCERTS
Join us for three of our full Masterworks programs in the morning at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. This season’s Morning Masterworks begin at 11am, with our Pre-Concert Conversation taking place one hour prior to the performance.
Mahler's Symphony No. 1, "Titan"
Fri, Dec 6, 11 am, Mahaffey Theater
Mahler said, “A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything.” And his Symphony No. 1, “Titan,” seems to call out and invite the listener to contemplate life’s many beauties as well as its heartbreaks. The concert also includes John Adams’ Chamber Symphony with its mix of wit, humor and rapid-fire challenging passages Tito Muñoz conducts.
Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Fri, Feb 21, 11 am, Mahaffey Theater
Singled out for his “disarming elegance and charisma” as a performer by Le Monde de la Musique, Andrew von Oeyen performs Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in a concert with Michael Daugherty’s salute to Superman with his Red Cape Tango and Schumann’s Symphony No. 2, evolving from moody and dark to its brilliant finale. Daniel Hege conducts.
Korngold's Violin Concerto
Fri, Mar 14, 11 am, Mahaffey Theater
Lauded by The Dallas Morning News as “a dazzling soloist,” Caroline Goulding plays Korngold’s film-theme-inspired and crowd-pleasing Violin Concerto. The program also includes Thomas Adès’ deliciously playful Dances from Powder Her Face and Prokofiev’s hymn to the human spirit, Symphony No. 5. Stuart Malina conducts.
