Twice recognized with the Illinois Council of Orchestras’ Orchestra of the Year award, the Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Alan Heatherington fill the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts with lush renditions of beloved and lesser-known works. “Eastern European Romanticism” begins with Alexander Borodin’s Overture to Prince Igor, the short-lived composer’s most famous work. Alexander Glazunov’s symphonic poem, Stenka Razin —dedicated to the memory of Borodin—weaves the musical tale of the eponymous Cossack’s anti-Tsarist rebellion. The program finishes up with Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no. 7, written to support the Czech nationalist movement with sections inspired by popular folk songs and commercial jingles from his homeland. Before lifting his baton, Heatherington prefaces each piece with learned commentary, helping curious showgoers to know what to listen for and incurious showgoers to know when to stop their ears against intriguing strains.
