Toledo Symphony

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. Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music has recovered from its disastrous premiere, when fireworks destroyed the outdoor stage, to become the music for many celebrations. Pachelbel’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. Mozart’s charming Serenata notturna features a solo string quartet, while Haydn’s Symphony no. 72 showcases the four French horns in a virtuoso setting that highlights the many possibilities of the then-brand-new instrument.
