We conclude the first season with Music Director Schulz the best way we know how—by throwing a party! There’s no better way to start an orchestral party than with Anna Clyne’s raucous Masquerade! Our soloist on this concert is South African pianist Johan Botes performing Tchaikovsky’s towering Piano Concerto No. 1, among the best known of all piano concertos. The second half of the program features the Auburn Symphony premiere of Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, a favorite of Maestro Schulz. The work is in three movements with each movement comprising a dance. The first is bold, confident, and highly expressive, especially when a saxophone enters with an intoxicating and seamless melody. The second movement waltz contains quirks and twists while the last movement rushes toward an ending that leaves you breathless.
