Harmonia’s 2023–2024 season commences on Saturday, October 7 with a festive opening program featuring some of the liveliest works in the repertoire: the rousing Festive Overture by Dmitri Shostakovich, Francis Poulenc’s ebullient Gloria and Ravel’s technicolor orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
This season, Harmonia presents musical works based on prophetic themes, bringing to life the stories of oracles, sorcerers and seers. Some of these works feature mythological and historical figures, such as Moses, Cassandra and the Sibylline prophet. Others represent music by those who seemed to possess the gift of prophecy themselves, such as Robert Schumann, Antonín Dvořák and George Gershwin.
From the Renaissance to the Romantics, from the Jazz Age to the present day, this is a season of exploration and discovery. We predict that you’ll love it, so subscribe today!
