Performed in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center at Charlottesville High School

Part of the 2019-2020 Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia season

Romantic Titans: Bruckner, Mendelssohn, R. Strauss

Katy Ambrose, Principal Horn in the Charlottesville Symphony, performs Richard Strauss’s exuberant Horn Concerto No. 1, the most frequently performed horn concerto written in the 19th century. Conducted by Michael Slon, the UVA University Singers join the orchestra and four vocal soloists for Felix Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42 and Anton Bruckner’s Te Deum. A joyful hymn of thanksgiving, Te Deum was the pinnacle of Bruckner’s output and one of the greatest large-scale choral works of its day. Rounding out the program is Jesse Montgomery’s “Caught by the Wind,” a meditation on the cycles of life inspired by her brother’s bicycle tour.
