From the lyrical woodwind and horn melodies of Richard Strauss’s Serenade in E-flat Major to Gounod, Delius and Mozart, our March concert heralds the arrival of spring

Richard Strauss’s Serenade in E-flat Major, composed when he was just seventeen years old, opens our March concert with lyrical woodwind and French horn melodies. Gounod’s sparkling, elegant Petite Symphonie was modeled after Mozart’s wind serenades; here, it precedes the dramatic first movement of Mozart’s “little” G Minor Symphony, used to great effect in the movie “Amadeus.” Finally, Delius’s On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring evokes the composer’s impressions of the Norwegian countryside by using the oboe, strings and clarinet to imitate the cuckoo heralding spring.

Filmed at the Temple for Performing Arts and broadcast on March 18, our Live from the Temple concerts feature a reduced-size orchestra spaced appropriately to ensure musician safety. Each broadcast features special interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, along with a post-concert Q&A session with Maestro Joseph Giunta. Click here for detailed instructions for accessing our concert broadcasts on your TV, a laptop, or even on your phone.
