Description

Beethoven: Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus
Leshnoff: Concerto for Clarinet & Bassoon (New York Premiere)
Assad: Saravá (US Premiere)*
Respighi: Pines of Rome

The Greenwich Village Orchestra's season finale opens with a spark: Beethoven’s depiction of the eponymous Titan who defied his fellow gods by giving fire — and with it civilization and creativity — to humankind. The GVO performs two of humanity’s newest creations: Jonathan Leshnoff’s Double Concerto for Clarinet & Bassoon — featuring Pittsburgh Symphony principals Nancy Goeres and Michael Rusinek — and Clarice Assad’s Saravá, a rhapsody paying homage to Brazilian poet, singer-songwriter and diplomat Vinicius de Moraes. Respighi’s colossal Pines of Rome brings our season to a triumphant close.
