Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra: Spring Concert

Pre-Talk at 2pm

Grieg Piano Concerto in A min. - Dr. Rick Miller Soloist
Mahler 4th Symphony

Springtime with the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra heralds a musical journey to the Romantic era, with musical depictions of landscapes. After an opening piece to set the mood by resident artist Randy Armstrong, we launch into one of Edvard Grieg’s most popular and important early works - the Piano Concerto in A minor. Considered one of the leading musical Romanticists, his development and inclusion of Norwegian folk music in his compositions launched Norway onto the international musical stage, in addition to helping coalesce a national identity. We are excited to present this performance with PSO President, Dr. Rick Miller as soloist.

The afternoon will conclude with Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. Programmatic in nature; presenting an ethereal child’s vision of Heaven, it is one of his shorter and lighter orchestrated symphonies.
