    October 21

     

    Known for his effervescent podium presence, conductor Nicholas McGegan opens the Discoveries season with Richard Strauss’ luscious Serenade, featuring 13 of Sarasota Orchestra’s wind and horn players. The string instruments have their turn to shine in Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro, composed in 1905 to show off the strings of the London Symphony Orchestra. The two teams are joined by trombones and timpani to perform Haydn’s last and perhaps best-known symphony, which brims with drama and energy.

    • R. STRAUSS Serenade for Winds
    • ELGAR Introduction and Allegro for Strings
    • HAYDN Symphony No. 104 (London)
