A Sweet for the Sweet
Penfield High School Auditorium | February 25, 2019, at 7:30 p.m.
The Overture to Candide is a clever, energetic reworking of the stage show’s best tunes, which Bernstein rescored for full orchestra. It has become his most popular orchestral work. Often referred to as the “dean” of African-American composers, William Grant Still wrote Poem for Orchestra during World War II to imagine the world’s rebirth of spirituality after desolate times, journeying from darkness into light. Howard Hanson was the Eastman School of Music’s director for 40 years, and his beautiful, lyrical Symphony No. 2, “Romantic,” traces its roots to the 19th century European traditions of melody and harmony. Grofé’s picturesque Grand Canyon Suite uses orchestral instruments to evoke the natural sounds he’d heard on a visit to this “world wonder”; the woodwinds imitate birds, and the trumpets sound like crickets.
