Almost Vienna

North State Symphony is performing Masterworks 3: Almost Vienna on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cascade Theatre, 1731 Market Street, Redding, CA

This concert explores the sounds of Vienna with a collage of favorites from many iconic composers from this famous musical hub. William Bolcom parodies many of these very composers in his Commedia for (almost) 18th-century Orchestra followed by the showcasing of the Young Artist Audition winners in a celebration of Mozart. The concert concludes with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, the only of his symphonies to rival his immortal Fifth Symphony in terms of rhythmic vitality:

  • Bolcom: Commedia for (almost) 18th-century Orchestra
  • Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 4, Movement I
  • Mozart: “Mi Tradi quell’alma ingrate” from Don Giovanni
  • Schubert: Overture to Die Zwillingsbrüder
  • Beethoven: Symphony No. 7

Guest Soloists are Jet Glover, Violin and Natasha Czajka, Soprano.

Free pre-concert talk one hour before the performance.
