The Program

  • Mendelssohn—”The Fair Melusina” Overture: The spirited, burbling motif that opens this overture transitions into a darker and more turbulent melody—fitting for a piece about a knight who marries, then abandons, a water sprite.
  • Dean—Testament: Contemporary composer Brett Dean’s ode to Beethoven was inspired by the master’s final will and testament, which he wrote at age 32 after learning of his worsening deafness; the tone is fittingly desperate.
  • Mozart—Piano Concerto No. 17: A light and airy theme on strings introduces a precise and meditative mood, then transitions almost effortlessly into a woodwind-heavy second movement.
  • Beethoven—Symphony No. 1 in C Major: The woodwinds bear the brunt of the melody in Beethoven’s first entry into the form, marked already by unusual choices in tempo and key.<p>

Riverside Symphony

New York City is full of freelance musical talent. For three decades, Riverside Symphony has gathered much of it together into innovative concert programs that display a taste for striking juxtapositions, mixing the titans of the classical tradition with modern, local works. At any given performance, audience members might see a rare work from Haydn or Prokofiev, a couple young soloists on the rise, and dozens of beautifully polished black shoes.<p>
