The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra presents Masterworks: Classical Exploration on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 2:30pm in the Concert Hall at Stambaugh Auditorium. Embark on an exploration through the classical works of Strauss, Coleridge-Taylor, Haydn, and Dvořák. As the music unfurls, the plot is revealed to listeners as the tale of Don Juan is told through energetic brass, romanceful winds, and the hushed tones of his last breath. Coleridge-Taylor’s Danse Nègre is a festive celebration of the African spirit. The adoration of the various cultures within the continent shine within the swinging rhythms and angular melodies. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, commonly known as “From the New World”, demonstrates his admiration of African American spirituals. The piece moves from old worlds to new, employing stylistic elements of Bohemian, German, French, Scottish blended with plantation songs of the American South. Guest Artist Brian Neal will join Your YSO for Haydn’s delightful Trumpet Concerto in E Flat, composed to showcase the capabilities of the newly invented instrument.
