The Longmont Symphony lately introduced their 2022–23 season of live shows. The season options six mainstage live shows, three chamber orchestra live shows, and a Messiah singalong in the course of the Vacation season (Dec. 18; see full season listings under).

The Beethoven symphony cycle will proceed with Symphony No. 8 (Oct. 22 and 23), and different acquainted orchestral repertoire will likely be represented by works of Dvořák and Sibelius. There will even be works by much less acquainted composers, together with two world premieres, including as much as a season with intriguing discoveries to be made on most applications.

Composer John Heineken

The primary of the 2 world premieres is Symphony for the Nice Return by American composer John Hennecken on the opening night time of the brand new season, Oct. 8. With it on the identical program are Dvořák’s acquainted Cello Concerto, performed by Naumburg Competitors winner Clancy Newman, Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Widespread Man, and George Walker’s elegiac Lyric for Strings.

The following installment of the LSO’s Beethoven cycle will characteristic the Eighth Symphony, presumably the least acquainted of the canonical 9 symphonies (Oct. 22 and 23 in Stewart Auditorium). Sharing the identical chamber orchestral program is a symphony by Anton Reicha, a recent and buddy of Beethoven. An adventurous and experimental composer for his occasions, Reicha is little recognized as we speak, however his work serves to fill within the context by which Beethoven labored.

Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate

The main work on the November mainstage live performance (Nov. 19) will likely be Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G main, a cheerful and upbeat piece that was written shortly earlier than the composer’s 1892–93 go to to the USA. Will probably be preceded by three works that mirror the native American expertise: Overture to the choral-orchestral Tune of Hiawatha by the black British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor; American composer Michael Daugherty’s Path of Tears for flute, strings and harp, impressed by the pressured removing of Cherokees from their homeland; and Chokfi’ (Rabbit) for strings and percussion by Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, a composer who’s a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma. Flute soloist for Path of Tears will likely be Brice Smith.

The LSO will have a good time the Holidays with a whole efficiency of Handel’s Messiah (Dec. 17), adopted by an audience-participation truncated Messiah “singalong.”

Silvestre Revueltas

The brand new yr begins with a household live performance (“Portray the Orchestra,” Jan. 21, 2023), adopted by an all-Sibelius program (Feb. 18, 2023). Sibelius is mostly under-represented in orchestra repertoire now, so it’s good to have a whole live performance of his music, even when this system sticks to his extra acquainted works—Finlandia, the Violin Concerto with soloist Judith Ingolfsson, and the Symphony No. 2 in D main.

March 18 and 19 will see the second live performance of the “Made in America” sequence, opening with Alcancías (Penny banks) for chamber orchestra by the 20th-century Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas. Jason Shafer, principal clarinet with the Colorado Symphony and a earlier soloist with the LSO, returns to play Copland’s Clarinet Concerto. Finishing this system are Gershwin’s Lullaby and Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, written for piano as a tribute to the Baroque composer François Couperin and later transcribed for orchestra.
