Scheherazade and Afternoon of a Faun
with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Thu, June 7, 2018
Sat, June 9, 2018
Woodruff Arts Center

DEBUSSY: Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun
FLETCHER: Piano Concerto

Shimmering. Sultry. Ambiguous. Revolutionary. With his quiet, dreamy and sumptuous Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun (1894), Claude Debussy ushered in the age of modernism, breathing new life into music. In 1888, Rimsky-Korsakov wrote Scheherazade, a muscular and lusciously exotic showpiece inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights. Only six years separate the two works, but they are worlds apart. The Debussy and the Rimsky-Korsakov are two of the most beloved works in classical music, but are especially near and dear to the hearts of harpists for the featured role that the harp plays in each of these other-worldly works.

Made in America Concert with the 
Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra
with Tyler Hartley on harp 

October 14 at 7:00
Lassiter Concert Hall
2601 Shallowford Rd
Marietta, GA 

Hear fantastic works by twentieth century American composers. The Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofe (the orchestrator of Gershwin's' Rhapsody in Blue) is one of the first works to use instruments to make sound effects. William Schuman (the American Schumann) wrote New England Triptych based on works of William Billings, regarded as the first American Choral composer. Variations on America by Charles Ives is exactly what it sounds like – variations on My Country 'Tis of Thee – but in a quirkily light-hearted way.
