Jader: Puccini and Dvořák
Streaming: Friday, September 11, at 7:30pm EDT
Puccini’s mastery of writing for strings is crystalized in I Crisantemi (Chrysanthemums), one of the famed opera composer’s few instrumental works, performed here in its string orchestra version. Dvořák’s joyous Serenade for winds was inspired upon hearing Mozart’s music on a trip to Vienna, yet still evokes the composer’s Czech background and influence.
