Samuel Barber, Knoxville: Summer 1915
Sergei Prokofiev, Peter & the Wolf
Ludwig van Beethoven, Symphony No. 8 in F Major
Pre-Concert Discussion 6:30pm, Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium
Join the Idaho Falls Symphony for an intimate concert that weaves together diverse musical narratives into one poetic evening. Soprano Michelle Broadbent will transport us to the year 1915 with a heartfelt performance of Samuel Barber's nostalgic portrait of a hot and lazy afternoon in Knoxville, Tennessee. From there, audiences will have a chance to experience one of the 20th century’s most brilliant children’s stories: Peter & the Wolf, with text and music by Sergei Prokofiev and enthusiastic narration by KIDK meteorologist Steve Cannon. Maestro Heuser and the Symphony musicians will also tackle the thrill and technical wizardry of Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony--a work that paints a picture all its own and seems to tell a timeless story to each and every listener.
