No fooling: this afternoon's concert conducted by Darko Butorac has something for everyone. Bach's festive Easter Oratorio, Sibelius' haunting Valse Triste and Strauss' unabashedly romantic Suite from Der Rosenkavalier.

Did you remember to set your clocks ahead one hour? You don't want to miss Alastair Willis' downbeat at 3:00 p.m. PDT this afternoon as he conducts OSSCS in an all-British program that includes Britten's Four Sea Interludes and Walton's Belshazzar's Feast!

Seattle Symphony assistant conductor Eric Garcia, who leads our Meany Hall program this weekend, says of the Shostakovich Festive Overture: "The work was composed in 1954 for a concert at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow commemorating the 37th anniversary of the October Revolution. This brief overture reveals no sarcasm, unrelenting dissonance, or long stretches of desolate orchestra textures—as one might expect from knowing his symphonies. It’s a 6 minute romp, in my opinion to be taken at face value."

Conductor Eric Garcia, who leads OSSCS this Sunday at Meany Hall, says about Igor Stravinsky's Firebird, which closes the program: "Even though the work is over 100 years old, there are those that still view it as a modern work. Works of the 20th century seem to have been stored in this capsule that keeps them perpetually 'modern.' I prefer to look at Stravinsky’s music as endlessly inventive and refreshing. Perhaps 'modern' is just another word for that concept."
