|BRITTEN||Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings|
|SCHUMANN||Symphony No. 3, “Rhenish”|
The Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings is testament to Benjamin Britten’s flare for setting poetry to music. Tenor (to be announced) and principal horn player Kevin Reid navigate this anthology of text tethered by a common atmosphere of night, sleep, and dreams. As the Serenade paints the night, so Schumann’s final symphony, the “Rhenish,” depicts the landscapes of the Rhine River through a tapestry of evocative melodies.
Concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Performances are expected to last between 60 and 75 minutes and there will be no intermission. Masks must be worn at all times. PROGRAM NOTES
