Bronspiegel Auditorium, New Bedford High School

Saturday, March 16, 7:30 PM

Yaniv Dinur, conductor
Jesse Holstein, violin
Anna Griffis, viola

Andreia Pinto Correia: Acanto
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”

Portuguese composer Andreia Pinto Correia was inspired to write Acanto by the growth patterns of a plant that is native to the Mediterranean region, acanthus mollis. We experience a different type of growth in Mozart’s beloved Sinfonia Concertante, a work in which Mozart greatly expanded his conception of how soloists and orchestra can interweave their playing. The close connection between soloists and orchestra that Mozart wanted is just what our soloists, NBSO concertmaster Jesse Holstein and principal violist Anna Griffis, who know our orchestra from the inside out, will provide. Beethoven’s third symphony represents his own growth from the influence and musical debt he owed Mozart. This is the symphony where Beethoven declared his own, unique genius, which has shaped what we expect an orchestra to sound like to this very day.
