The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will open the 2010-2011 season at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 in the Crossroads Bible Church, 97 East Road.
The program will be dedicated to the Daniel Pearl Foundation as part of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days. This commemoration of Pearl’s Oct. 10 birthday uses the universal language of music to encourage and build a platform for “harmony for humanity,” throughout the world.
The program to be conducted by Michael Gyurik, will open with the “Overture Festivo for Symphonic Orchestra” by Dmitri Shostakovich.
The named composer laureate of the Soviet state composed this piece one year after Stalin’s death and Shostakovich exhibits a facility in orchestration and a gift for sustained irony, tragedy and lyricism.
The “L’Arlesienne Suite No. 1” will follow the overture. This suite is full of color and rhythmic dash and expresses the liveliness of his opera “Carmen.”
Kay Dunn, a flutist in the LASO, will perform the featured work on the program “Poem for Flute and Orchestra” by Charles Griffes.
This work recalls a return to Griffe’s more traditional form in the dissonant, harmonic language.
Also on the program is “Symphony No. 40,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composed in 1788.
