Livestreaming from Caruth Auditorium in SMU’s Owen Arts Center; advance registration required.
Instead of its typical large ensemble, this fall the Meadows Symphony will feature the Meadows Chamber Orchestra, a string orchestra of approximately 20 players. The concert will open with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ lovely Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, a work inspired by folk melodies and commissioned for the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. It will be followed by Ernest Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No. 1, a 1925 work that blends classical form with modern tonalities. Closing the program will be a string orchestra version of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (1874), arranged by Jacques Cohen. Mussorgsky composed the work as a memorial to his friend, Russian artist Viktor Hartmann, after attending a retrospective exhibit of the artist’s work.
