Fort Collins Symphony February 5 Concert: Felix Mendelssohn & Samuel Barber
February 5, 2021417 W. Magnolia St., Fort Collins, CO
Solemn, Joyful & Ecstatic
February 5. 2022
Slip into our mid-winter concert to resonate with Oskar Morawetz’s powerful Memorial to Martin Luther King and the quiet solemnity of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, composed in 1936 as a reflection of the changes occurring in America and Europe. The counterpoint is Joan Tower’s ecstatic vibrancy in Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman and Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s joyful Serenade for Strings.
Guest Cellist: Anthony Elliott
