2017-2018 Waterbury Symphony Orchestra’s 80th Anniversary Season: Sonic Structures

Force of Nature

Leif Bjaland, Conductor

April 22, 2018 | 3 pm
NVCC Fine Arts Center

Program

Beethoven    Symphony No. 6, in F major, Op. 68 “Pastoral”
Stravinsky  ‘The Rite of Spring’

 

The WSO concludes its 80th season with a celebration of nature, courtesy of two of the greatest composers the world has ever known. Beethoven saw nature as a refuge, a place to escape the agonies of the world. His Pastoral Symphony is an expansive, lyric respite for this angry revolutionary of 19th century music. Stravinsky saw nature in all its wildness and spring as a rebirth of life from roots as ancient as the earth itself. His music for the ballet The Rite of Spring stirred sensation when it was premiered in 1913, changing the course of musical history forever.
