A message from the Maestro

Dear Friends of the MSO,

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be embarking upon our 2014-15 season.  From Vienna to London to Leipzig and Paris, this Glorious Journey promises to be a most memorable one. With our epic “Viennese Heroes,” we welcome the return of celebrated BSO Concertmaster Jonathan Carney in the MSO premiere performance of Brahms’ Violin Concerto followed by the groundbreaking Eroica Symphony by Beethoven.  Revisiting this monument of our symphonic tradition is certainly something the musicians and myself have been looking forward to. For the Holidays, we welcome back University of Miami’s amazing vocalists, in a program blending seasonal favorites and deeply stirring holiday melodies.

London is the final destination of our March concert with Haydn’s final masterpiece, a piece in which the father of the symphony wholeheartedly displays his humor. But before heading to London, our concert will start with Mendelssohn’s rendition of the Scottish Island of Staffa and Schumann’s Cello Concerto, the ultimate expression of melancholy ending in a rousing victory, performed by our very own principal cellist, Lukasz Szyrner.

The Mid-Atlantic Symphony will be at its apogee when it is joined by world-renowned soprano Janice Chandler-Eteme for our finale concert, in a contrasted and powerful celebration of French music.  First, the lush Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun by Claude Debussy is followed by the Songs of the Auvergne by Joseph Canteloube, a collection of masterfully arranged pastoral songs. The program culminates with the incredibly electrifying Symphony in D Minor by Cesar Franck, maybe the single most energetic piece in the history of western music. The musicians and I look forward to sharing this Glorious Journey with you, to experience together the unique beauty and power that music gives us all.

Enjoy the performances!
