Harris Symphony No. 3
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2
Amalia Hall, violin
Dvořák Symphony No. 8

Premiered by the Boston Symphony in 1939, Roy Harris’s Symphony No. 3 set the bar for a unique American sound, with spacious textures and gorgeous harmonies that evoke our wide-open landscapes. Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, another masterpiece from the 1930s, features one of the most beautiful slow movements ever composed. We are excited to present international violin virtuoso Amalia Hall as our soloist. We finish with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8, deeply inspired by Czech folk traditions. Underneath its sunny and genial nature, a new form of composition takes shape, where melody dictates structure.

Ives Symphony No. 3 (Winner f the 1947 Pulitzer Prize)
Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, Op. 31
Zhengyi Bai, tenor
Meredith Brown, horn
Dvořák Symphony No. 9

Our closing concert features the most famous symphony ever written— Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” composed in the U.S. and inspired by African-American folk traditions. American maverick Charles Ives wrote his Symphony No. 3 just 15 years later, but it was not premiered until 1947, when it won the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Last, it is a great pleasure to welcome one of our orchestra’s own, Principal Horn Meredith Brown, to join Adler Fellow Zhengyi Bai in one of the great song cycles of the 20th century: Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings.
