    Oxford-trained conductor Sarah Ioannides, music director of Symphony Tacoma, leads a program devoted to musical influencers—and those whom they inspired. Berlioz and Schumann both greatly admired the music of innovative 19th-century French composer Louise Farrenc, who battled sexism in music—and won. Liszt got the idea for Christus, an oratorio about the life of Christ, from Handel’s Messiah. In his exuberant Symphony in C, Bizet not only emulates, but directly quotes, his teacher Gounod.

    PROGRAM

    • FARRENC Overture No. 1
    • LISZT Hirtengesang (Shepherd’s Song) from Christus
    • BIZET Symphony in C

    Villa-Lobos traces connections between the German composer J.S. Bach and the music of Brazil in his Bachianas Brasileiras. The royal site of Aranjuez deeply moved Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo, whose alluring Concierto de Aranjuez has come to be the most famous work for guitar and orchestra. Korean guitarist Bokyung Byun, the first female winner of the prestigious JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition, brings the music Rodrigo described as “the perfume of magnolias, the singing of birds, and the gushing of fountains” to life. Mendelssohn’s vacation to Italy led to the irrepressibly joyful "Italian" Symphony.

    PROGRAM

    • VILLA-LOBOS Bachianas Brasileiras No. 9
    • RODRIGO Concierto de Aranjuez
      Bokyung Byun, guitar
    • MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4 (Italian)
