Gershwin's Three Preludes find inspiration in Brazilian rhythms, a bluesy lullaby, and stormy melodies set against a Spanish flamenco style. Glière's Three Pieces for Horn is a melodic gem that tugs at your heart strings. They form a stark contrast to the tumultuous music of Beethoven's famous Piano Sonata No. 17, later coined the "The Tempest." Faculty artist Clive Greensmith performs Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata with Music Director Jeffrey Kahane. This powerful work of beauty is an apt conclusion for a stirring opening concert.

Complimentary snacks and wine for purchase begin at 3:30 pm.

 There's no doubt, audiences are thrilled by the Sarasota Orchestra's new music director, Anu Tali. She's brought an intense energy from the orchestra in previous performances and we found this yet again in a downright thrill ride of an encounter...
