MACINTYRE: An Orchestral Prelude on Dies Irae
LISZT: Piano Concerto No. 1
BERLIOZ: Symphonie Fantastique
GUEST ARTIST: Stanford Cheung, winner of the 3rd annual MSO Youth Concerto Competition
Translated to, "Day of Wrath", Dies Irae will be our tribute to the haunted spirit of late fall and the dark imagery of All Hallows Eve. Selected for its strongly programmatic nature and ominous tone, Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique will be the feature piece of the evening. Often described as a compelling musical portrait of the troubled psyche of an artist, Symphonie Fantastique is a thrilling glimpse into a complex spectrum of mental states, including morbidity, obsession, intoxication and hallucination. Our soloist for the evening will be pianist Stanford Cheung, winner of the Third Annual MSO Youth Concerto Competition. The youthful Mr. Cheung will make his debut as a soloist, performing Liszt's virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 1 with the orchestra.
