what’s on tap?

tomorrow and monday night, the oregon symphony offers p-town its final program of the season, featuring john adams’ take on a liszt piano piece, john adams’ take on the city, antonín dvořák’s take on a lullaby for strings, and igor stravinsky’s take on sacrificial virgins.

why go?  yo: it’s the last concert of a freaking remarkable 2011/12 season, jun iwasaki (fresh from carnegie) is back on the concertmaster hotseat, a freshly-trimmed coach kalmar is on the podium, the show is gonna be recorded, and the program features not one but two (!) works by the brilliant left-coast composer john “not-our-second-president” adams.  only have time for a single reason?  well, when this season was unveiled over a year ago, the beavs asked every musician it could get its paws on what he or she was most looking forward to performing.  without fail, stravinsky’s rite of spring was at the top of their lists.  word.
