what’s on tap?

tomorrow and sunday afternoon, the oregon symphony kicks things off with the 5th symphony of british composer ralph vaughan williams [how british is he?… he’s so british his first name is pronounced “raif”].  the band is then joined by piano god jeffrey kahane for a mozart concerto and wraps it up with a little charmer by sir edward elgar.

why go?  um, 5 reasons off the top of my furry lil’ head:

1) *charles noble (xo of the mighty viola section) recently sent this out into the tweet-o-sphere: The Romanza of RVW’s 5th Symphony just might be the most gorgeous thing we play this season.

2) *sarah kwak (guest concertmaster for the band’s recent performance of papa haydn’s the creation) is returning as guest cm for a second try-out this weekend… read into that what you will.

3) it’s the first time (like, ever!) the oregon symphony will play vaughan williams’ fifth symphony ~ a premiere 69 years in the making.

4) the pentatone label will be in the house… recording!

5) jeffrey kahane.  piano.  mozart.  ‘nuff said.

got tix?  great.  need tix?  *click here and get ‘er done.  yay!
