Symphony to open

By
From page B3 | October 19, 2012 |

The Folsom symphony’s 2012-13 opening concert on Saturday, Oct.20, “A Heart’s Jewel and Triumph,” presents Schubert, Mendelssohn, Dvorak and Tchaikovsky and features a “heart’s jewel” and a “triumph,” along with two more pieces, one a mystery and one festive.

The “heart’s jewel” of violin concertos, as described by Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, is Mendelssohn’s “Concerto in E Minor,” widely regarded as the finest violin concerto of all time.

Violinist Rebecca Corruccini, a Sacramento Youth Symphony alumna now with the Minnesota Orchestra, will guest as soloist.

Corruccini also is the concertmaster for the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra and a chamber musician.

The “triumph” is Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” a stirring paean commemorating Russia’s defeat of Napoleon’s “Grande Armee.” The work references the French and Russian national anthems. With cannon shots in the score, this music is popular for the Fourth of July.

The mystery is Schubert’s “Symphony No. 8,” usually referred to as “unfinished.” The mystery arises because music scholars cannot agree whether the piece was intended to be complete with only two movements, while most symphonies have three or four, or whether another movement or two were unfinished or were completed and lost.

Adding to the puzzle is the fact that the music was hidden until nearly 40 years after the composer died. When finally performed, it was hailed as a “brilliant masterpiece.”

Maestro Neumann described the first movement as “quiet and melancholy with a few minutes of agitation” and the second as “gentle, serene, fragile.”

The festive piece is Dvorak’s “Carnival Overture.” Dvorak wrote that the music evoked “unrestrained hilarity of people giving vent to their feelings in the songs and dance tunes.”

“A Heart’s Jewel and Triumph” will be performed Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

Buy tickets online or by calling 916-608-6888 or visiting the ticket office at Folsom Lake College. Prices range from $25 to $42, $20 to $37 for students and seniors.
