Description:

Böhme Brass Sextet
Dvořák Serenade for Wind Instruments
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings

Marcelo Lehninger Conductor

Imagine a lover with a guitar standing under the window of his beloved, trying to woo her with plaintive lyrics and heartfelt melodies. He is almost always singing a serenade. It is sometimes melancholy, sometimes filled with longing, and always yearning for the sublime. Our greatest classical composers have left us orchestral evocations of those lovers playing their hearts out. Two of the finest serenades for strings alone are by Dvořák and Tchaikovsky, among the most gifted melodists of the 19th century. Though you may not be able to afford the entire Grand Rapids Symphony string section in the garden of your beloved, bring him or her to the concert and let us provide the persuasion!
