Haydn: Symphony #70
Beethoven: Triple Concerto ~ Trio Solisti
Mendelssohn: Symphony #5 “Reformation”
Happy Birthday Wisconsin Philharmonic! To celebrate 70 years of beautiful music in Waukesha County, Trio Solisti, called “the most exciting piano trio in America” by the New Yorker, joins the orchestra in Beethoven’s “Triple” Concerto. We recognize another anniversary: 500 years of Lutheranism and Protestant Reformation. Cake will be served!
New for the season from the Wisconsin Philharmonic is a free, 30-minute informal “Music Uncovered” interactive session with the Music Director and Conductor, Alexander Platt, guest artists or soloists beginning one hour prior to the start of the concert.
To understand the unique nature of the Reformation Symphony, Pastor Aaron Christie, Trinity Lutheran (WELS), Waukesha, Wis., will be joining the Wisconsin Philharmonic’s Platt, to discuss Mendelssohn’s music and his Lutheran faith in the Music Uncovered pre-concert discussion. The free session starts at 6:30 p.m., with the doors opening at 6 p.m. Reservations are required for the Music Uncovered session.
