COPLAND El Salón México  
GRIEG Piano Concerto in A minor    
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5 in E minor  

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor | EMILE NAOUMOFF piano

To open the Classical season, we highlight the widely divergent flavors of the music of Aaron Copland, Edvard Grieg and Pyotr Tchaikovsky. First up is Copland’s El Salón México, a work that makes dramatic use of Latin folk materials. Written in 1936 and regarded as an overture of Mexican popular melodies, the piece was inspired by the composer’s visit four years earlier to a Mexican dance hall.

Our guest artist Emile Naoumoff, who has been likened to Vladimir Horowitz and Arthur Rubenstein, studied with Nadia Boulanger and worked with Leonard Bernstein. Join us as he presents a dramatic case for Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor. Emile and Neal go way back, and you can expect lots of sparks from their collaboration.

The program concludes with one of the greatest Russian composers: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Between 1881 and 1888, he did more traveling than composing, and what he wrote was of little substantive value. He was actually consumed by the fear that he had written himself out. Still, when his Symphony No. 5 was successfully introduced in St. Petersburg on Nov. 17, 1888, he grew in fame and ultimately grew content with the work. In fact, Symphony No. 5—expertly crafted, vibrantly orchestrated, and featuring a memorable melody for solo horn—has become one of the composer’s most popular works, forever solidifying his personal and artistic triumph over adversity.

BIZET  Carmen Prelude
TCHAIKOVSKY  Symphony No. 5 in E minor

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Classical Connections season opener spotlights one of the greatest and most tragic of Russian composers: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The program opens with the glittering prelude from Bizet's Carmen, after which Maestro Neal Gittleman delves into the creation of one of the most beloved symphonies ever penned. After intermission, Tchaikovsky's Fifth is performed in its entirety.

Plagued by a variety of personal challenges, the composer routinely poured his emotions into his music to escape his devastating lows. Between 1881 and 1888, he did more traveling than composing; his muse seemed to have flown away. He was consumed by the fear that he had written himself out. Still, his Symphony No. 5 was successfully introduced in St. Petersburg on Nov. 17, 1888. Ultimately, he grew content with the work.

Symphony No. 5 is the most unified of the composer’s symphonies. Throughout the symphony a solemn motive, interpreted as Fate, is heard again and again. But the repeated use of the Fate motive is only one of several reasons why the work encompasses a stellar unity of purpose and design. The Andante melody of the second movement is repeated in the finale; the first main theme of the finale is derived from the first principal theme of the opening movement; that first-movement theme also recurs in the major key in the closing part of the finale. Symphony No. 5
—expertly crafted, colorfully orchestrated—has become one of the composer’s most popular works, solidifying his artistic triumph over adversity.

STAYIN' ALIVE rock ensemble
PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

For one night only, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and guest artists Stayin' Alive will bring your favorite Bee Gees songs to vivid life.

Skilled singers and collaborative songwriters Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibbs formed their family act, the Bee Gees, in 1958. Their talents shone brightest throughout the late 60s to early 70s rock and late 70s disco periods.

Songs like “To Love Somebody” and “Holiday” reached the Top 20 in 1967 and made the Bee Gees a household name. They were responsible for the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, which took over the airwaves with hits like “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “More Than a Woman” and “How Deep is Your Love."

From psychedelic rock to disco, the Bee Gees’ assortment of songs can still bring you right back to their unique time in the history of music.

Talk about stayin’ alive. This great music is more alive today than ever! And it sounds great with a full orchestra. The DPO and our fabulous guest artists will be interpreting the hits just for you on October 3. We’ve got the fever—you'll catch it too!
