Afternoon of a Faun

Saturday Symphony 1

June 9, 2018

Saturday | 8:00 pm | Sarasota Opera House
Tickets from $35 | Seat Layout

From the languid flute solo with which it opens, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun—Debussy’s impressionist masterpiece—draws you into its dreamlike musical landscape. On the opposite side of the emotional spectrum stands Bruch’s fiery Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring the Sarasota debut of exciting young violinist Angelo Yu (praised by the Cincinnati Inquirer for his “technical wizardry and … impish personality“). Mozart’s enigmatic and eloquent Symphony No. 39—the first in the final trilogy of symphonies he wrote at the end of his life—completes the program, led by festival faculty conductor Larry Rachleff.
