Our final main season concert of the year features pieces which reflect on time and place. The marvelous soprano, Jennifer Casey Cabot, returns to our stage for Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs. As the name suggests, these songs were among the last the composer wrote. Each one is named for a specific time period and they are infused with the presence of death, but emanate a sense of calm and acceptance, a life complete. Things take a cheery turn in Libby Larsen’s Deep Summer, which reflects the phenomenal blaze of color that enlivens the plains landscape. This celebration of nature’s abundance is a joyful depiction of peace and awe by one of America’s finest living composers. Capital City Symphony's Assistant Conductor, Tiffany Lu, will direct a performance of Richard Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, the lush symphonic poem for chamber orchestra which Wagner composed as a birthday present for his wife, Cosima. Our program concludes with Respighi’s evocative Pines of Rome, a tone poem that takes us on a tour of the Eternal City. Conducted by Victoria Gau.
