Philippe Entremont steps in as honorary conductor during a stirring concert that sees guitarist Pepe Romero and guitar quartet The Romeros adding texture to the Munich Symphony Orchestra’s lush swells. Formed in 1945, the orchestra has been traveling the world for the majority of its existence, playing classical masterpieces and recording scores for The Silence of the Lambs, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, and more than 500 other films.
- Mozart—Symphony No. 35 in D Major: What today is known as the Haffner Symphony began as a serenade commissioned by a Salzburg family to commemorate the ennoblement of Sigmund Haffner. Swelling with full orchestral bursts while remaining even-keeled, the piece feels as noble as the position it was written to celebrate—despite the fact that it was a bit of a rush job on Mozart’s part.
- J.S. Weiss—Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D Minor: Melodic classical guitar melodies weave effortlessly through the symphony’s strings to create a lilting score. Fun fact: the piece was originally written for the lute before Alice Artzt rearranged it.
- Joaquín Rodrigo—Concierto Andaluz: This Spanish composer’s three-movement work combines impressionistic guitar with baroque influences while paying homage to his home country and the Andalusian region—a familiar locale for Spanish guitar quartet The Romeros.
- Mendelssohn—Symphony No. 4 in A Major: “[I]t will be the jolliest piece I have ever done, especially the last movement,” wrote an ecstatic Mendelssohn as he composed his valentine to Italy. Starting with a merry sonata, the symphony ends in an even merrier uptempo dance movement.
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
