*From OrchestraIowa.org*

This concert lets audiences embark on a journey through the music capitals of the world, experiencing works from some of the most revered composers in classical music. Travel from Germany, to Austria, to Russia, and back to the United States, all in the course of one evening.

Beethoven’s Leonore Overture comes from the only opera he ever composed, Fidelio. While the opera was never as successful as his orchestral works, Beethoven revised this overture four times in pursuit of perfection. Orchestra Iowa will perform his third heroic revision.

Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante, elegant and exciting, features the brilliance of Orchestra Iowa’s newly appointed Concertmaster, Luke Witchger, and principle violist Lisa Ponton. The beautiful interaction between the orchestra and the soloists will bring the audience to high spirits during what has been said to be a “virtuosic finale”.   “I am ecstatic for our audiences to hear our soloists’ incredible abilities showcased in this concert. For Luke in particular, this will serve as a powerful introduction to the community as a debut soloist with the Orchestra,” said Timothy Hankewich, Orchestra Iowa’s music director.

After intermission, American composer Samuel Barber’s First Essay for Orchestra promises lush, lyrical sounds that will captivate listeners.

Rounding out this sonorous evening is Russian master Shostakovich’s first symphony. Although written when he was just a teenager, it tellingly reflects Shostakovich’s creative prowess and shows his vivid and imaginative style. This combination of master composers from around the globe promises to be a musical experience not to be missed.
