The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus' season will conclude with David Chase conducting an imaginative pairing of works by two European masters who came to the U.S. at the beginning of World War II. Benjamin Britten composed his American Overture in 1941 for the Cleveland Orchestra, but it was not performed until 1983, six years after the composer’s death. Paul Hindemith’s moving setting of Walt Whitman’s elegy for Abraham Lincoln, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: A Requiem for Those We Love, is considered by many to be his finest work, featuring chorus, mezzo-soprano and baritone.
David Chase will conduct a performance of:
Benjamin Britten: An American Overture
Paul Hindemith: When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: A Requiem for Those We Love
Guest artists include: Janelle DeStefano, mezzo-soprano; Darren Chase, baritone
