WHERE WILL THE MUSIC TAKE YOU?
The 2013-14 season promises to be one of stunning young talent and a generous mix of beloved favorites and yet-to-be-discovered repertoire. We open the season with Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 5, paired with Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 5, the Egyptian, and introduce American pianist Bryan Wallick. We pay homage to Benjamin Britten with an early chamber work, his Young Apollo.
Ana Vidovic, a name making headlines in the guitar world, performs Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Guitar Concerto. Also on the program, Mozart's sprightly Impresario Overture and Bruckner's Symphony No. 2, continuing our survey of his early symphonies.
Cellist Joshua Roman, who delighted Madison audiences last year, makes his debut performing Haydn's D major Concerto alongside Mozart's thrilling Symphony No. 41, the Jupiter.
Another rising star is gifted young violinist Karina Canellakis, who spent two years playing in the Berlin Philharmonic. She will perform Michael McLean's Elements, a modern work not unlike Vivaldi's Four Seasons, with Earth, Fire, Air and Water as themes, alongside Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Haydn's Symphony No. 101, the Clock.
Finally, we welcome the return of Stewart Goodyear, his third appearance since opening the Capitol Theater in 2005. This time he will perform his own Piano Concerto of 2010, a spectacular work of monumental proportions, book-ended by two equally exciting works, Beethoven's Choral Fantasy and his mighty Symphony No. 3, the Eroica.
It's a truly star studded season with captivating music for everyone. Bring your friends and join us in our home, the acoustically brilliant Capitol Theater, for five evenings of magic!
