Perspectives: War and Peace

Mar 10 - Mar 11, 2023

Schuster Center

“Subtle, gentle, troubled, reflective, [...] movingly modest, considering the violence that begot it. The work’s calm, if calm it is, is hard won.” That’s how The New York Times describes Vaughan Williams’s response to World War I, following his return home from the front. Lili Boulanger also responds to The Great War in her brief and affecting piece with baritone and our DPO Chorus. A double concerto that features our viola and cello principals, Resilience commemorates the end of World War II, with its final movement an emotional prayer for peace.

Beethoven's Second Symphony

May 19 - May 20, 2023

Schuster Center

The First Cello Concerto is certainly a delicious example and a gorgeous vehicle for the instrument’s sonorous voice, especially as performed by young Sterling Elliott, a winner in the 2019 National Sphinx Competition. Mozart’s brief Mass, with a “cameo” appearance by the organ, shows off the magnificent DPO Chorus. Beethoven’s Second concludes this season’s Masterworks Series and the Beethoven symphony cycle.
