Prokofiev: Classical Symphony in D major, Op. 25
Principal Clarinet Dominic Desautels makes his debut as an HPO soloist in Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, a masterpiece of the repertoire that showcases the lyricism and virtuosity of the instrument. Hear two new works by our two 20-21 Composer Fellows, composed following six months of mentorship with Gemma New and Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte. The program closes with Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, a lighthearted and quirky masterwork modeled after the style of Mozart and Haydn.
Please note: Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony in D Major replaces R. Strauss’ Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme.
