7:30 pm

The Ashland Symphony Orchestra opens its 2020-2021 season with an exhilarating musical journey across three continents. From Wagner’s explosive opera music to the intimacy of Barber’s famous Adagio for Strings, we will land in Latin America to experience the heart pounding rhythms of Ginastera’s dances. We welcome renowned French cellist Sebastian Hurtaud in his ASO debut, bringing us his fabulous performance of Elgar’s monumental Cello Concerto.

Let’s take a trip through time, focusing on the epicenter of European Classical music: Vienna. We nod to Halloween with Johann Strauss’s festive overture to Die Fledermaus, an opera about a costume ball. During the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we need no further excuse to program one of his finest symphonies on the second half. In between is a more recent and still relatively unknown Viennese gem: the eclectic and entertaining concerto by Gulda which deftly blurs the idioms of composers such as Beethoven and Strauss, including elements of jazz, rock, polka, classical, and more!
