Lang: Prisoner of the State - Guard

New York Philharmonic

The New York Philharmonic’s climactic season finale is the World Premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s opera prisoner of the state in a fully staged production directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer. A retelling of Beethoven’s Fidelio, the bold new opera chronicles a woman’s attempt to rescue her husband from unjust political imprisonment. The action unfolds around the musicians of the Orchestra, who are both observers of the story and participants in the prison.

Beethoven: Ninth Symphony

Durufle: Trois Danses (Op. 6)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor (Op. 125)

Trois Danses - A lushly beautiful and romantic collection of short dances for orchestra.

Symphony No. 9 - Recognized as one of the most celebrated and profound works in western music, and considered by many to be the greatest piece of music ever written - Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 is beloved throughout the world. The Ninth Symphony extols not just joy, but the capacity for joy - as well Beethoven might, since exercising that capacity through music is how he survived his own trying circumstances. The universally known text touches on his preoccupation with domestic happiness and on man’s endless quest to find his own place in the universe and a relationship with the Creator.

Join us for a sublime evening of monumental music-making performed by the critically acclaimed USNA Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs, the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, and the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra!

Ives The Unanswered Question
Schubert Symphony No. 8 (Unfinished)
Mozart Mass in C minor

Marcelo Lehninger Conductor | Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus,  Pearl Shangkuan, Director

Mozart and Schubert both died in their 30s. The former left his Great Mass in C minor incomplete, and the latter’s Symphony No. 8 remained unfinished at their respective deaths. Yet the elegance and lyrical beauty of both have captivated audiences ever since.  Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus joins the orchestra for the Mass in C minor, which Mozart composed with his wife, Constanze, in mind as the soprano soloist, hoping that his new bride’s performance would impress his father, Leopold Mozart. Regarding The Unanswered Question by the Yankee iconoclast Charles Ives, Aaron Copland, the dean of American composers, declared it to be “among the finest works ever created by an American artist.”

Ronaldo Miranda - Variações Temporais, Beethoven Revisado (Temporal Variations, Beethoven Revised)
Alexander Miller World Premiere
Beethoven Symphony No. 9, "Choral"

Marcelo Lehninger Conductor  | Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus, Pearl Shangkuan, Director

Much of classical music speaks of humanity’s desire to live as one and in peace. Greatest of all is the the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven. To close the season, Marcelo Lehninger has chosen to present the Symphony No. 9 alongside a brand-new work by Grand Rapids Symphony’s own Ale Miller, plus a set of orchestral variations honoring Beethoven written by his fellow Brazilian composer Ronaldo Miranda. Beethoven’s final symphony invokes a merciful God whom Beethoven is certain will lead humankind to eternal brotherhood. Though cloaked in a humanistic poem by Schiller, the text to the ‘’Ode to Joy’ that concludes the Ninth Symphony leaves no doubt in the end how Beethoven feels we will achieve universal understanding among nations. The final lines are in part:“Be embraced, you millions…above the canopy of stars must dwell a loving Father. Seek Him above the canopy of stars!”
