LASO concert promises balance

-A A +A

The May 10 Spring Concert presented by the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will feature the works of several well known composers from the mid-romantic period.
Director Don Gerheart, has chosen works which “have audience appeal and utilize all of the sections of the orchestra as much as possible, while still having a balanced program,” Gerheart said.
Procession of the Nobles opens the concert. Russian composer, Nicolay Rimsky-Korsakov, was a master of orchestration and wrote this piece as part of his opera Mlada. It begins with the brilliant fanfares of the brass along with percussion, then proceeds to processional music, a majestic tune in the strings and concludes with an energetic march.
The other three works have the common theme of using incorporated folk tunes — from Russia, Germany and Czechoslovakia. The Caucasian Sketches #2, “Iveria,” by a pupil of Rimsky Korsakov, Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov, is a suite of four movements based on Russian folk music.
The Hungarian Dance Number 5 of Johannes Brahms was originally composed for piano, four hands, but has been arranged for full orchestra. Its lively melodies, familiar to many, are based on folk tunes of the Roma people.
