The program features two pieces from Benjamin Britten’s tragic 1945 opera Peter Grimes, the composer’s first to become a critical and popular success. Four Sea Interludes, which includes “Dawn,” “Sunday Morning,” “Moonlight” and “Storm,” and the Passacaglia both provide psychological cues in the opera’s dramatic story of a fisherman accused of murdering his apprentices. The second half of the concert features Gustav Mahler’s ebullient, colorful Symphony No. 4, which explores themes of childhood, innocence and spirituality. Its final movement is based on a German song that translates as “The heavenly life,” offering a child’s view of heaven, and will feature soprano soloist and Meadows alumna Alissa Roca.
