Mozart's Symphony No. 1, written by a budding master of a mere eight years, establishes one of the central themes of the Excite Season. Throughout the year, we will constantly return to Mozart's music to propel us along in our appreciation of many styles and genres.

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini was Sergei Rachmaninoff’s last composition for piano and orchestra and is one of his best his best-known works. Here, the DPO welcomes Anastasia Rizikov to the keyboard. Since she was twelve, Rizikov has been competing as an adult on the international competitive circuit, taking first place among competitors twice her age! 
Talk about prodigies. 


The performance continues with Scheherazade... adventure made music! Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s 1888 suite for orchestra, instantly transports the audience to a warm Arabian evening in which the captive Scheherazade regales the powerful Sultan with amazing tales, night after night. The famous suite recounts stories from the collection of 1,001 Arabian Nights. Rapturous.

VIVALDI The Four Seasons
GANDOLFI Selections from Music from the Garden of Cosmic Speculation

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
JESSICA HUNG violin soloist
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Join us at the Schuster Center during the height of autumn to celebrate the world of nature: whether it be nature as we see it—plants and animals, water and land—or nature as forces that we may or may not see—the building blocks of the cosmos. Opening the program, the DPO and concertmaster Jessica Hung perform one of the best-known compositions of the baroque master, Antonio Vivaldi. The Four Seasons is the collective name given to four separate violin concertos based on the seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. When he published The Four Seasons, Vivaldi included four sonnets (possibly written by the composer himself) to evoke the images captured by his music.

In Dumfries, Scotland, an architectural theorist, Charles Jencks, and his late wife, Maggie Keswick, an expert on Chinese gardens, designed what came to be called the Garden of Cosmic Speculation. This utterly amazing place inspired composer Michael Gandolfi to create music interpreting the many experiences of the sculptural garden. It's the perfect companion to Vivaldi's signature concerto. (Gandolfi's piece will be explored in detail on the Sunday, October 16 Classical Connections program called Gandolfi's Cosmic Garden).

GALILEI-RESPIGHI  "Gagliarda" from Ancient Airs and Dances
GANDOLFI Selections from Music from The Garden of Cosmic Speculation: The Zeroroom, Soliton Waves, The Snail and the Poetics of Going Slow, The Universe Cascade, The Garden of the Senses Suite, Fractal Terrace, The Nonsense

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
 
The unique Classical Connections concert format features musical examples and discussion by DPO Artistic Director Neal Gittleman, followed by a performance of the entire composition.

The Dayton Philharmonic will begin the program with “Gagliarda,” which is part of the larger work Ancient Airs and Dances by Ottorino Resphigi. Resphigi based it on Renaissance lute music by Vincenzo Galilei, the father of Galileo!

In Scotland, an architectural theorist, Charles Jencks, and his wife, Maggie Keswick, an expert on Chinese gardens, designed what came to be called the Garden of Cosmic Speculation. The thirty-acre site consists of forty major areas of landscapes, gardens, bridges, sculptures, and architecture.

As a composer and music educator, Michael Gandolfi's natural curiosity leads him to create “points of contact” between music and other fields, including science, film, and theater. His wide-ranging interests led him to discover the Garden of Cosmic Speculation. This home of science as garden and vice versa inspired Gandolfi’s 2009 work The Garden of Cosmic Speculation. With the garden and its theories as his muse, Gandolfi has created music that deftly conjures the garden landscapes and the concepts of natural and physical science that they represent.
