JAMES LOWE, CONDUCTOR
ARCHIE CHEN, PIANO
Celebrate our 75th season by experiencing some of the music performed during the orchestra’s early history. We start with the very first notes ever played by the SSO: Gluck’s Overture from Iphigenie in Aulis. Spokane’s own Archie Chen plays Robert Schumann’s soulful Piano Concerto, and we revive an early commission from composer George Frederick McKay, whose music captures the spirit of the American northwest. Like McKay, Dvořák was inspired by the music of his native land. His Eighth Symphony is influenced by jaunty Bohemian folk tunes, making it one of the cheeriest symphonies in the repertoire.
Christoph Willibald Gluck — Overture from Iphigenie in Aulis, (Wagner ending)
Robert Schumann— Piano Concerto
George Frederick McKay — Suite on Fiddler's Themes
Antonín Dvořák — Symphony No. 8
