This concert will feature the Renaissance Concerto, by American composer Lukas Foss. Performed by principal flutist Kathryn Levy, Foss’s flute concerto is written in in a modern fashion but based on Renaissance works, in effect a “handshake across the centuries.” Principal cellist Brooks Whitehouse will perform Elgar’s sublime Cello Concerto which conveys intimate sentiments of sorrow and despair, as the composer looked back over his life. The concert will open with George Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, a sophisticated and dynamic work punctuated by Caribbean rhythms and Cuban native percussion.
Recorded at the Stevens Center and available for on-demand viewing for 30 days.
