ELGAR: Serenade, De FALLA: El Amor Brujo Ballet Suite, BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 7, David Amado: conducting, and Denyce Graves: Mezzo Soprano.

The DSO will welcome the internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano Denyce Graves to perform the solo part in the Ballet Suite from Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo. Filled with Andalusian passion, Gypsy flair, magic, ghosts, and, in the end, true love, it is a glittering showpiece for both singer and orchestra. The concert concludes with Beethoven’s electric 7th Symphony, which Richard Wagner called ‘the apotheosis of the dance’ for its intense rhythmic energy. The program opens with Elgar’s beautiful Serenade for strings, a work as decorous as the Beethoven is raucous.
