Alexander Kerr, Concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony, joins the Fellows for an afternoon of musical storms. Father of the Symphony Joseph Haydn instills humor throughout his brooding 80th Symphony, especially in the boisterous, drunken finale. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart saved the key of G minor for his most intense works, including this popular Quartet whose virtuosic parts were at first deemed too demanding. Paul Chihara creates a musical arbor with Willow, Willow, a soliloquy for amplified bass flute that floats over a tapestry of percussion. This unique work later employs a tuba to haunt “like the ghost of Hamlet’s father.” Finnish contemporary icon Einojuhani Rautavaara invites the winds to a playful romp in his Octet.
