Enjoy a fascinating talk on the lives and music of great composers from your home – the perfect pairing for an afternoon tea! Hosted by Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte, each online Talk and Tea presentation accompanies an HPO concert this season. With intriguing stories and musical examples throughout, these entertaining talks offer insights into the works you’ll hear our musicians perform in our Concert Hall Series.
In this episode, Abigail offers insights into June’s concert Mozart & Prokofiev.
Mozart and Prokofiev were both incredible piano virtuosos who made their living as freelance composers and performers. In 1917, Prokofiev took inspiration from Mozart and other classical era composers in the creation of his Classical Symphony No. 1, an early work of the neoclassical style. Balance, form, and other compositional details from the classical era were reimagined in music over a century later. In this Talk and Tea, hear Mozart’s works performed by our HPO Brass Quintet and String Quintet followed by their contemporary answer as we catch our orchestra rehearsing Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony No. 1.
