The Deal

Venue Seating Charts:

"A Classic Pops Hit Parade"

A freshly composed fanfare by guest conductor Steven Reineke opens an evening of waltzes, polkas, and marches that make room for Maurice Ravel's slow-simmering Bolero, as well as Tchaikovsky's cannon-punctuated 1812 Overture.

Beethoven's Symphony No. 7

  • Mendelssohn—The Hebrides: Inspired by a visit to Fingal's Cave in the titular Scottish islands, Mendelsohn's symphonic overture subtly evokes the eerie atmosphere of the vast, sea-filled chamber of stone.
  • Liebermann—Concerto for Flute and Orchestra: Wunderkind composer Lowell Liebermann wrote this concerto for world-famous flautist James Galway. The piece ends with a nimble third movement whose high-flying triplets demand exquisite breath control from the soloist.
  • Beethoven—Symphony No. 7: Praised by Wagner as "the apotheosis of Dance," Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 shows off the legendary composer at the height of his powers. The stately second movement was so popular during its 1813 premiere that it had to be played twice to placate the crowd, then a third time to make them put their clothes back on.

Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring

  • Messiaen—Les Offrandes Oubliées: This triptych—a tribute to the composer's devout Roman Catholic faith—bookends humanity's feverish descent into sin with a mournful first movement and a finale that slowly fills with color like a stained-glass window at sunrise.
  • Debussy—La Mer: Debussy's vivid portrait of the sea evokes the scent of salt-spray with impressionistic tones and melodic color.
  • Stravinsky—Le Sacre du Printemps: When it first premiered in 1913, Stravinsky's avant-garde ballet incited riots with its spare, primal musical construction. Almost 30 years later, that same quality made it a natural fit for the dino-filled depiction of prehistory in Walt Disney's Fantasia.

Florida Orchestra

Florida Orchestra has delighted ears across the Tampa Bay area for 44 seasons filled with time-tested masterworks and sprightly pops concerts. Created in the 1968 merger between the St. Petersburg Symphony and the Tampa Philharmonic, Florida Orchestra ties the two sides of the bay together into one musical tradition. The ensemble has continued its program of outreach ever since, which has recently included cultural exchange programs with Cuba, collaborations with local institutions, and the tradition of allowing one lucky child to sleep inside a tuba during each performance.
