Language of the People
Join us for a concert exploring community identity and pride featuring TBSO Assistant Concertmaster Kathlyn Stevens. Ginastera’s variations was composed as the result of a commission from his home country of Argentina; he was able to adapt folk traditions into his personal style. Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto has a long tradition of cementing a soloist’s place in the world, used to showcase one’s personality and uniqueness. Dinuk Wijeratne uses the “21st century language of the people”, the modern pop genre, to revitalize a lost art, and the great “Papa” Haydn wows us with Symphony 102, considered by many to be his best.
