Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Offers “Romantic Era,” the third, final National City Classical Masters Concert on August 27 at Fraze Pavilion
The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Neal Gittleman will fill the air with the sounds of romantic classical music in the final round of emotional, soul-stirring performances at Fraze Pavilion on Friday, August 27.
Priviliged by their genius, romantic artists and composers revealed the world by expressing themselves. Their music reveals the inner workings of their idealistic, sensitive souls.
Conductor Neal Gittleman leads the DPO in the Act 1 Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, which Wagner conceived in 1845 as a comic add-on to his Tannhäuser.
Guest artist Alon Goldstein, one of the most respected young pianists on the international scene, performs Piano Concerto No. 2 by Rachmaninoff, who used his own skills as a performer not only to write music, but also to explore fully the expressive possibilities of the instrument.
Then, the concert – and the Classical Masters Series – concludes with Neal Gittleman leading the DPO in the Symphony No. 8 by Antonin Dvorák, in which we hear the clear influence of Bohemian folk music.
The Fairborn High School Band will open for the DPO at 7:30 PM. The National City Classical Masters Concert begins at 8:30.
