Program Notes

Principal Oboe Philippe Tondre is featured in Strauss’s melodic Oboe Concerto, a stunning example of the oboe’s power as a solo instrument. Inspired by a walking tour through the Scottish Highlands, Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony (“Scottish”) evokes the composer’s reflections on the sweeping landscapes of the British Isles. Also on the program: Anton Webern’s mystical depiction of nature, Im Sommerwind, inspired by Bruno Wille’s poem and given its world premiere by The Philadelphia Orchestra and Eugene Ormandy in 1962, nearly 60 years after its composition.
