Antonín Dvořák poured his soul into Serenade for Strings, finishing it in just 12 days. The music captivates throughout its five movements, moving from lyrical to high spirited to reflective to an exuberant finale.
Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman No. 1 and Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man bookend a group of pieces, featuring the Utah Symphony’s brass and percussion sections, spanning nearly 400 years from Giovanni Gabrieli’s Sonata pian’ e forte (1597) to Tōru Takemitsu’s peaceful Night Signal – Signals from Heaven II (1987).
The Utah Symphony debut of guest conductor David Robertson, who served as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and held a transformative 13-year tenure as Music Director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
