Boise Philharmonic – Mendelssohn and More

January 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm MST

With wit and effervescence, Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony pays an affectionate homage to composers of the classical period, particularly Haydn. In Prokofiev’s words, “It seemed to me that had Haydn lived to our day he would have retained his own style while accepting something of the new at the same time.” Lyrical passionate and highly technical, Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin features our superb guest soloist Simone Porter. Sibelius’ bold and expansive Symphony No. 5 elicits some of the composer’s most mesmerizing and inspired music.
