I’ll be performing Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music with the Toledo Symphony. From their website (Click to see it):
Stefan Sanderling leads the Toledo Symphony in some of the most recognizable melodies of the Baroque era. Handelâ€™s Royal Fireworks Music has recovered from its disastrous premiere, when fireworks destroyed the outdoor stage, to become the music for many celebrations. Pachelbelâ€™s famous Canon has accompanied celebrations of a different sort, being one of the most requested pieces for wedding processionals. It takes on a unique luster in the concert hall, particularly when paired with its companion-piece, the more boisterous but rarely-heard Gigue.
Two quartets are featured in the Classical works on the program. Mozartâ€™s charming Serenata notturna features a solo string quartet, while Haydnâ€™s Symphony no. 72 showcases the four French horns in a virtuoso setting that highlights the many possibilities of the then-brand-new instrument.
