Price Range $31 - $61
Duration 94 minutes with intermission

Week one of the Festival closes with Mozart’s mighty Jupiter Symphony.  The full Festival Orchestra, under the direction of Larry Rachleff, will perform the joyous final symphony of the master. The first half of the program features faculty cellist Robert deMaine and Music Director Jeffrey Kahane in Brahms’ second cello sonata. Composed in 1886 during his summer holiday in the Swiss countryside, the work is both passionately stormy and heartbreakingly tender. Jean Françaix’s work for winds and strings is full of quirky humor. The concert begins with Petroushskates by Grammy Award winning composer Joan Tower.  Described as a “Carnival on Ice,” Tower’s work combines the spirit of Stravinksy’s Petroushka with the flowing energy of ice skating.
