“Masterworks 4”

“Masterworks 4” showcases a night of works by Kodály, Shostakovich, and Dvořák, featuring the solo work of cellist Clancy Newman. A player since the age of 6, when the Tooth Fairy finally left enough music notes under his pillow, the Juilliard graduate has received acclaim and awards throughout his career. Newman joins the Southwest Florida Symphony for Kodály's Dances of Galánta, which is influenced by its composer's Hungarian and Romani musical roots, and the four movements of Shostakovich's Cello Concerto no. 1. Symphony no. 7 rounds out the evening with Dvořák's aural story of the Czech people as he saw them in 1885.

A Pops Concert Featuring Music from John Williams

In celebration of the Hollywood composer's 80th birthday, the musicians delight audiences with a program of some of John Williams' most beloved scores. The evening includes selections from cinematic favorites such as Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Jaws, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. The familiar strains come to life beneath the baton of Grammy- and Emmy-winning film-and-television conductor Richard Kaufman.

“Masterworks 5”

During “Masterworks 5,” conductor Leif Bjaland leads violin soloist Jennifer Frautschi and the symphony through pieces by Rimsky-Korsakov, Mozart, and Prokofiev. Frautschi, recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, previously has soloed with ensembles including the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. In the Russian Easter Festival Overture, Rimsky-Korsakov references Russian Orthodox chants in a score dotted with Biblical quotes, such as "rock on," that underscore its liturgical roots. Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 3 in G Major cheekily trills between different moods, and Prokofiev's 5th Symphony offers an ominously graceful, stirringly triumphant response to World War II.
