Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra in Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Brouk, and Debussy
April 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC+0
Mendelssohn’s famous overture, The Hebrides, evokes the rocky Scottish shore, while Dvorak’s retelling of the sinister legend of the Water Goblin contains music that could inspire film composers.
Joanna Brouk (1949-1917) studied at Oakland’s Mills College with teachers including Terry Riley, and her trancendent piece “Lalinia Electra, ripples on the lake…”, from 1982, was commissioned by the Bay Area Women’s Philharmonic, but the parts now reside in the Free Library’s Fleisher Collection.
La Mer (The Sea) is a transformational work, and is Debussy’s symphonic tone-poem, depicting the ocean at dawn, the play of the waves, and a storm. We hope you can join us, rain or shine!
