Guest conductor Nicholas Hersh takes us on a cosmic journey through our Solar System on November 4. Experience Carl Nielsen’s Helios Overture, Mozart’s majestic Symphony No. 41, and Holst’s awe-inspiring symphonic suite, The Planets.
Beginning at the heart of it all, Carl Nielsen’s Helios Overture portrays the light of our home star: a sublime sunrise over the ocean. The final symphony of one of history’s most enduring musicians, W.A. Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 is at once so elegant and powerful that it was compared to Jupiter, king of the heavens. Finally, while Gustav Holst took inspiration for his symphonic suite The Planets from astrological, not astronomical, sources, his vivid music transforms the orchestra into a spacecraft on a billions-mile journey from fleet Mercury to lonely Neptune at the very fringe of our place in space.
