    Orchestra of the Pines: “Scores of Nationalism”
    November 15, 7:30 p.m.

    Capriccio Espagnol (15 minutes)   Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov



    O vin, dissipe la tristesse from Hamlet (4 minutes)   Ambroise Thomas



    Juan Garza, baritone



    Intermission



    Symphony No. 2 in D minor, Op. 43 (50 minutes)   Jean Sibelius



    Not many works can evoke the sense of pride and nationalist as that of Jean Sibelius. His mighty Second Symphony, while begun in Italy, founds it final penned notes back home in Finland. The profound work intertwines pensive melodies and bold fanfares with lyricism and bravura. The orchestra is joined by guest baritone and concerto/aria winner, Juan Garza, performing an aria of dramatic poise. The orchestra also presents Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant Capriccio Espagnol, a concerto for orchestra highlighting soloists throughout the entire work!
