Michelle Merrill, Conductor Richard Lin, Violin
Evansville, Indiana
Saturday, 16 November 2019 - 7:00 PM
Following the sparkling Magic Flute Overture, we continue our tradition of presenting winners of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Gifted violinist Richard Lin performs the unforgettable Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. Aaron Copland’s quintessential American masterpiece, Appalachian Spring, perfectly captures the feeling of vast open spaces, hope, and the possibility of country life in an ideal America.The work popularized the Shaker folk song, “Simple Gifts.” Concert Romanesc is a fine example of Ligeti’s folk style, drawing inspiration from memories of his
Romainian childhood and transforming the orchestra into a gigantic village band.
