Unmasking the Stars – Santa Rosa Symphony with Garrick Ohlsson

Sun, October 6, 2019, 3:00 pm

ANNA CLYNE: Masquerade
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 4
MATT BROWNE: How the Solar System Was Won
STRAUSS: Also sprach Zarathustra

Anna Clyne’s charming Masquerade evokes the elegant costumed promenades of 18th century Europe. Beloved Bay Area favorite pianist Garrick Ohlsson returns with Beethoven’s mesmerizing Fourth Piano Concerto, a work that begins with understated sweetness and gentle lyricism and builds to a shimmering and exultant climax. Matt Browne’s How the Solar System Was Won, a rousing and rhythmic homage to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, is paired with Strauss’ epic tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra, which formed the bold soundtrack for Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece.

“a gloriously warm, richly romantic and effusively mellifluous reading that was, simply put, sheer poetry.” – Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
