University Orchestra Concert
Colgate University Orchestra, Marietta Cheng, Conductor. Dvorak Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88, Mozart Symphony No. 35 in D Major, K. 385 “Haffner”, two cello showstoppers: Popper Hungarian Rhapsody and Fauré Elegy, Zachary Sweet, Cello and the Berlioz
This charming work is known for its many gorgeous and flowing melodies; Dvorak wrote that “melodies simply pour out of me”. He composed the symphony while in the Bohemian countryside so bird calls, thunderstorms and folk dances add rustic, local color. The work depicts a bucolic and pastoral world. A beloved staple of the orchestral repertoire, the symphony ends with high spirits. Other concert highlights will be the celebrated Mozart Symphony No. 35 in D Major, K. 385 “Haffner” and two cello showpieces: Popper Hungarian Rhapsody and Fauré Elegy, Zachary Sweet, Colgate’s Instructor of Cello. The program will open with Berlioz’s rousing Hungarian March from the Damnation of Faust. All are invited.
