Hilary Purrington: Likely Pictures in Haphazard Sky
Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No. 1
Beethoven: Symphony No. 2

• Experience the cheerful side of Beethoven with his Symphony No. 2, a piece whose difficulty and complexity marked a change in symphonies forever.
• One of the premiere cello concertos in all the repertoire, and one of the most demanding, all registers of the cello sing out in this concerto’s one continuous movement, by Romantic French composer Camille Saint-Saëns.
• Likely Pictures in Haphazard Sky, by young American composer Hilary Purrington, opens in an ethereal haze with long romantic melodies that climax in a stunning brass fanfare.
