Solace of Nature 

Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 4 pm

Dmitri Pogorelov, violin

Gluck

Dance of the Blessed Spirits

Schumann

Violin Concerto

Beethoven

Symphony No. 6, Op. 68 (“Pastorale”)

The beauty of nature and simple, bucolic joys of a bygone era are celebrated in a trio of Classical and Romantic works. Of special interest is a rare performance of Robert Schumann’s final masterpiece, the long-lost Violin Concerto, presented by Dmitri Pogorelov, one of the work’s most ardent champions. Beethoven’s enchanting Pastorale Symphony, a chronicle of the great composer’s love of the countryside, is filled with pictorial delights that portray nature in all its glory–murmuring brook, bird calls, country dancing, raging thunderstorm and hearty shepherd’s song.
