Famous for inciting a riot at its 1913 premiere due to its cutting-edge sound, Stravinsky’s Rite represents “the mystery and great surge of creative power of Spring.” Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon’s Low Brass Concerto has been called a “wonderfully accessible, richly melodic new work—one propelled by exhilarating rhythms, vibrant orchestral color, and an ingenious use of strings, woodwinds and percussion” (Chicago Sun-Times). Opening the program is Mozart’s Haffner Symphony, a staggering work of energy and invention. This concert features Brian French, trombone; David Wulfeck, trombone; Erik Salzwedel, bass trombone; and Matt Ransom, tuba. The Winston-Salem Symphony, one of the Southeast’s most highly regarded regional orchestras, begins its 73rd season in October 2019.
