Tuesday, April 24, 2018

BERNSTEIN | West Side Story, Concert Suite No. 1
BERNSTEIN | Chichester Psalms
BERNSTEIN | Make Our Garden Grow from Candide
SHOSTAKOVICH | Symphony No. 5 in D minor, op. 47

TAKE NOTE…

  • In addition to being considered one of Bernstein’s quintessential works, West Side Story also marked the Broadway debut of lyricist Stephen Sondheim, whose later works included GypsyA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the ForumSweeney Todd, and Into the Woods.
  • Bernstein’s West Side Story and Candide were both based upon classic literature. West Side Story was a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet while Candide was inspired by Voltaire’s novel of the same name.
  • Shostakovich wrote his Symphony No. 5 at a time when he lived in fear of Stalin and the Russian government. He slept in the stairwell outside his apartment to spare his family the experience of what he believed was his imminent arrest.
  • Stalin and the government were pleased with the symphony and everything it included, although many fans and critics have come to hear a subtext critical of the Russian government.

UPDATE
Laura Jackson will not able to conduct 100 Years of Bernstein due to ear infections preventing air travel. She will be in Reno in spirit and can’t wait to return as soon as she is fully recovered. In the meantime, we are thrilled to welcome Donato Cabrera to guest conduct in her absence. Maestro Cabrera serves as the music director of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and California Symphony and was the Resident conductor of the San Francisco Symphony through 2016. He grew up in Reno, attending UNR as well as pursuing studies in Manhattan, Indiana, and Illinois, and has since become a world-renowned guest conductor in addition to his music director appointments. He is looking forward to making music again in the Reno community.
