Baton Rouge Symphony Opens the 2015/2016 Season

by Pat Wattam

The Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra opens its 2015-16 season, Explorers and Discoveries, in a spectacular display of ground-breaking compositions: Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 — a monumental convergence of classicism and romanticism; of the personal and popular— along-side Beethoven’s “Emperor” concerto, a reinvention of the concerto placing the orchestra and soloist as both adversaries and much needed allies.

BEETHOVEN           Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major “Emperor,” Op. 73

TCHAIKOVSKY       Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36

“Biss’ considerable gifts have been rightly acclaimed: he has a wonderful fluency and clarity, and a focused intensity.”– The Guardian


AND, as if that isn't enough, there is an optional BLACK TIE event to start the evening!  Join Co-Chairs Whitney Vann and Robert Schneckenburger and the BRSO as they celebrate the opening of the 2015-16 Season!  This black-tie (OPTIONAL) , sit-down dinner features a 4-course premier chef’s menu, wine pairings and special musical entertainment.  An evening that promises to delight, leading up to the 8PM concert.

Baton Rouge Symphony Performs Mahler's 2nd Symphony

by Pat Wattam

We are in for a real treat on March the 13th, 2014 as the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, joined by the Acadiana Symphony, the Baton Rouge Chorus and other signers, perform Mahler's 2nd Symphony - the Resurection Symphony - my personal favorite orchestral piece!  This work is BIG!  It requires a huge orchestra and chorus and it drives you to the depths of despair and then to the heights of estacy in the resurrection!  It is such a powerful piece.

Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony was first performed in 1895. The inspiration for the work came from music that Mahler heard at the funeral of Hans von Bülow, a conductor he revered. It's a massive and utterly awe-inspiring work, which begins with an often-terrifying funeral march and ends, more than 80 minutes later, with a blazing choral hymn celebrating the ultimate rebirth of the spirit. The adjective "life-changing" is overused to describe many things, but Mahler's Second genuinely has that kind of transformative power. Some fans of the symphony have a religious, almost cultish devotion to it. For many orchestras and conductors, it is a musical Everest, a benchmark, and a go-to piece for momentous occasions. It is simply one of the greatest works of art ever created, and it is exactly the music that we need to listen to right now."  Albert Imperato
