Lexington Symphony 2013-2014 Season Opener
September 14, 2013
Reunite with friends and community at Lexington Symphony's season opener featuring a program of "firsts," presented by Lexington's own professional orchestra and Music Director Jonathan McPhee. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 is one of the first orchestral works for which a composer specified the instruments that should play each musical part, giving a consistent sound color to the work each time it is played. Britten's Sinfonietta was his first published work that put him on the musical map. Mozart's Symphony No. 29 marks the beginning of a set of four symphonic masterpieces that internalizes the symphonic form created by Haydn and takes it to new glories. And finally, Stravinsky opened a new neo-classical chapter in his composing style using the early music of Pergolesi for inspiration in his Pulcinella Suite. Lexington Symphony's 2013-2014 Season, "Music of Masters," pays homage to some of classical music's most distinguished composers.
