For his best-known masterwork, the Cyrano De Bergerac Overture, Op. 23, Dutch composer Johan Wagenaar named movements after the traits of his titular long-nosed hero, including "Heroism," Chivalry," Humor" and "Satire." The piece hums with all the delightful zest such qualities imply, and now you can hear it live as Seattle Festival Orchestra returns to Renton at First Evangelical Presbyterian. Cyrano kicks off a three-part evening of classical music that also includes Mozart's last fully instrumental work written before his death, Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622, as well as Franz Schubert's dramatic Tragic symphony, composed when he was only 19 years old.
Children under the age of 5 or who cannot remain quiet during the performance are discouraged from attending.
Running time is approximately two hours.
