Everett Philharmonic Orchestra Concert: Masterworks – Orchestral Dances!
Sunday, October 8, 2023
Masterworks – Orchestral Dances! Join the Everett Philharmonic Orchestra in our first concert of the season with masterworks by Price, Brahms and Beethoven that will have you dancing in your seat!
The Everett Phil opens its season with festive masterworks by Price and Beethoven, and an elegiac double concerto by Brahms. Florence Price’s Symphony in E Minor won first prize in the prestigious Rodman Wanamaker Competition. She took to heart Dvorák’s suggestion to create a national composition built upon American music. Innovating upon the example set in his New World Symphony, Price’s symphony masterfully crafts African-American spirituals, church hymns and the American Juba dance into a distinctly American masterpiece. Next, the husband-and-wife team of John Michel and Carrie Rehkopf Michel return to Everett to perform the deeply poignant double concerto for cello and violin by Brahms. Everett audiences have enjoyed their virtuosity and pathos previously, but never together. Then we’ll conclude with a masterpiece that Beethoven considered one of his best, his Symphony No. 7. In light of all the joy and jubilation found in its outer movements, it’s astounding that his second movement should so deeply touch audiences that it’s still often used today to invoke feelings of tragedy and loss. Equally powerful, the symphony’s energetic presto and finale will have you dancing out of your seats.
