MENDELSSOHN Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt (Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage) Overture
SCHUMANN Piano Concerto
DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 9, “From The New World”

Mendelssohn’s inspirational overture, based on two poems by Goethe, brilliantly depicts the immobility of a becalmed sea to the redemptive vitality of a rising wind and the promise of homecoming.

Schumann’s dramatic piano concerto, composed at the urging of his wife and virtuoso pianist Clara, explores the breadth and depth of love through a beautiful interaction of piano and orchestra.

Dvořák’s famed and final symphony is a musical testament to the “New World” he found in New York City – it brims with brass fanfares, Bohemian and Czech dance rhythms, and utilizes folk tunes like Swing Low, Sweet Chariot as melodic motivators.
