Joseph Edelberg
SYMPHONY
Santa Rosa Symphony
Bruno Ferrandis, conducting
Joseph Edelberg, violin

WAGNER: Forest Murmurs from Siegfried
BACH: Violin Concerto in E major
TSONTAKIS: Clair de Lune
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 4, Italian

The program opens with a melody of undulating leaves and gentle bird-songs—an orchestral interlude from Wagner’s opera Siegfried, part of his gigantic Ring cycle. Concertmaster Joseph Edelberg shines in a Bach concerto that pushes the limits of what’s possible for the violin. We also present the west coast premiere of a new work with an old name, Clair de Lune by George Tsontakis. This American composer has recently received two of compositions richest prizes: the Charles Ives Living and the Grawemeyer Award. And our mid-winter concert concludes brightly with Mendelssohn’s 4th Symphony, a work inspired by the dance rhythms, color and atmosphere of Italy.
