Description:

Mallory Thompson, conductor

This evening’s performance features music of the heart and the mind. The concert opens with the pairing of David Diamond’s second work for winds, Heart’s Music, and Albert Olver Davis’s setting of Strauss’s heart-wrenching lied Allerseelen. Also on the program is Ida Gotkovsky’s tone poem Poème du feu, depicting humankind’s discovery of fire. The second half of the concert is devoted to a staple of the Symphonic Wind Ensemble’s repertoire, Michael Colgrass’s Winds of Nagual, a work that delves into alternate realities of the mind.
