Symphony opens 32nd season of free community concerts

 

 

TEMPE, Ariz. – The Tempe Symphony Orchestra features principal cellist
Carol Matthusen in the first of four concerts at 7:30 p.m. on Monday in
Boyle Auditorium, McClintock High School, 1830 E. Del Rio Drive.
Admission is free. Seating is open.

 

The performance will mark Matthusen’s 27th season with the orchestra.

 

About the program

Froissart Overture,” Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Singable, sturdy English melodies highlight this overture, written by
one of England’s most famous composers.

 

“Kol Nidrie, Adagio On Hebrew Melodies, Op. 47,” Max Bruch (1838-1920)
with Carol Matthusen, cello soloist

Even in the first bars of Beethoven’s C# minor quartet, the opening
theme of Kol Nidrei is recognizable. The music world has come to
consider this the most characteristic tune of the synagogue.

 

“Symphony No. 2 in C Minor (Little Russian),” Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky
(1840-1893)

Carol Matthusen has been principal cellist with the Tempe Symphony
Orchestra since 1979.

Tschaikowsky’s music has come to be known and loved for its distinctly
Russian character as well as its rich harmonies and stirring melodies.
Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2 is beloved for its rollicking melodies and
clear symphonic style.

 

The Tempe Symphony Orchestra is a program of the city of Tempe Cultural
Services Division and is supported by the Arizona State University
School of Music. For information, call 480/350-5287 or visit
