CSO Masterworks: Mozart in the Lowcountry
Mozart will find himself at home in the Lowcountry for the premiere of our 2019-2020 season, as we pair his enigmatic Symphony No. 39with Charleston composer Edward Hart’s Under an Indigo Sky. The Charleston Symphony premiered Under an Indigo Sky to a sold-out crowd at the Gaillard Center in 2012, and to date it remains one of the most popular pieces the CSO has ever played. Yuriy Bekker will reprise his role as violinist for this wonderful concerto, written by Hart as "a love letter to the state of South Carolina."

Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 is among the last he everwrote, and remains one of his most mysterious works. What was the inspiration for this piece? For whom did he write it? Did he live to hear it performed? While we may never know the specifics surrounding this symphony, we will at least have the pleasure of hearing Mozart’s delightful masterwork for ourselves this Fall.

CSO Masterworks: Pictures at an Exhibition
The Charleston Symphony is thrilled to announce aspecial collaboration with award-winning watercolorist, Mary Whyte. A Charleston-based artist with an international reputation, Whyte will debut her collection of portraits We the People alongside the Charleston Symphony’s performance of Respighi’s Trittico Botticelliano ("Three Botticelli Pictures"), Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Images of Whyte’s paintings, a portrait of one veteran from each state, will appear on stage throughout the performance.

In 1942, Copland was commissioned to help create "a gallery of musical portraits" honoring exemplary Americans. Copland decided to write about Abraham Lincoln (his first choice, Mark Twain, was already taken). Copland chose to include a spoken-word narration, saying, "No composer could possibly hope to match in purely musical terms the stature of so eminent afigure." Those chosen to narrate this piece are typically prominent members of society, ranging from prime ministers to actors to astronauts. We are excited to welcome Mayor John Tecklenburg as our Lincoln Portrait narrator.

CSO Masterworks: Rach 2
Did you know that we may have hypnotherapy to thank for the existence of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2? Rachmaninoff was in the midst of a four-year long depression, caused by the near-universal excoriation of his first symphony and the death of his musical idol, Pyotr IlyichTchaikovsky. He found the treatment so helpful that he wrote Piano Concerto No.2 in only a matter of months, and even dedicated it to the doctor who treated him.

Fauré began composing his requiem shortly after the death of his father and shortly before the death of his mother, although he insisted he wrote the piece simply for the pleasure of making music. Faure premiered his requiem in 1888, but spent the next 13 years revising the piece until he felt it was absolutely perfect. This was no doubt time well spent, as the work has since gone down as one of the great works for chorus and orchestrain history. The CSO Chorus will perform.

CSO Masterworks: Bach's Brandenburg
It is difficult to imagine that anyone would everconsider the music of Johann Sebastian Bach overwrought and exaggerated, but this is indeed how many nineteenth century music critics interpreted his work. They labeled this period’s music "baroque," stemming from the Portuguese word barroco, or "oddly shaped pearl." Over time, music critics and audiences alike have come to regard Bach’s work as nothing short of genius, and the word baroque has shed its pejorative connotation to simply become the title for a period in music history.

After hearing Bach perform on the harpsichord inBerlin, the Margrave of Brandenburg commissioned Bach to send him originalcompositions to play at court. Bach in turn wrote six technically-complex,genre-bending concertos that today bear the name of their recipient, the BrandenburgConcertos. Enjoy an evening of groundbreaking and brilliant—but certainly notoverwrought—baroque classics, featuring two of Bach’s six Brandenburg Concertos.

CSO Masterworks: Conrad Tao Plays Brahms
Conrad Tao returns to Charleston after an astounding performance with the CSO in 2018. The former child prodigy is among the greatest living piano players in the world, and has begun to establish himself as a respected composer. Last year, the New York Philharmonic commissioned andopened their season with Tao’s original composition, Everything Must Go.The performance was lauded by The New York Times as "One of the best classical music performances of 2018." And if that’s not enough, Tao has managed to accomplish all of this by the tender age of 24.

Tao returns to play Johannes Brahms’ Piano Concerto No.1, written when the composer was about Tao’s age. Brahms drafted this concertoduring a period of great turmoil in his life, attempting it first as a symphonythen as a sonata for two pianos before finally settling on a concerto. At the time, Brahms’ mentor, Robert Schumann, had recently been institutionalized after throwing himself into the Rhine River. Brahms acted as a source of support for his friend’s distraught wife, Clara Schumann. Some say a romance may have bloomed between Clara and Johannes, although we’ll never know for sure. One thing we do know for sure: we cannot wait to hear Conrad Tao play Brahms' dynamic and introspective piano concerto next year.

CSO Masterworks: Scheherazade
East meets West as the Charleston Symphony performs John Adams’ Harmonium and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, the latter of which is based on the collection of middle-eastern folk tales, One Thousand and One Nights. In Rimsky-Korsakov’s own words, "The Sultan Schariar, convinced that all women are false and faithless, vowed to put to death each of his wives after the first nuptial night. But the Sultana Scheherazade saved her life by entertaining her lord with fascinating tales, told seriatim, for a thousand and one nights. The Sultan, consumed with curiosity, postponed from day to day the execution of his wife, and finally repudiated his bloody vow entirely."

The evening's program also highlights the stories of another woman who "could not stop for death," Emily Dickinson. The CSO Chorus will perform John Adams' Harmonium, a choral symphony thathas gained an impressive reputation in its relatively short lifespan. Composed in 1981 for the San Francisco Symphony, Harmonium features the poetry of Emily Dickinson and John Donne interpreted not by soloists, but instead by a choir. The piece begins with a meditative interpretation of Donne's"Negative Love," gains steady momentum with Dickinson's "Because I could not stop for Death" and reaches a passionate crescendo in "Wild Nights."

CSO Masterworks: Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony
The inspiration for Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony was, unsurprisingly, a trip to Scotland. Mendelssohn reportedly enjoyed his time in Edinburgh immensely, touring the highlands, meeting with famous writer Sir Walter Scott, and attending bagpipe competitions. Were Mendelssohn an ordinary tourist, he may have commemorated his travels with a souvenir or two, but thankfully for us, he instead chose to write a symphony. Mendelssohn wrote the melody that would ultimately form his third symphony while in Scotland, although it was not until 13 years and two symphonies later that he finally finished what we now know as the Scottish Symphony.Also on the evening’s program is Béla Bartók’s Viola Concerto, a technically-challenging piece written by the Hungarian composer while he was in the final stages of fighting leukemia. In the 70 years since its premiere, Bartók’s final composition has arguably become the most widely-played viola concerto in the world. CSO Principal Violist Jan-Marie Joyce will perform.

CSO Masterworks: Charleston and the New World
There is perhaps no better way to describe our 2019-2020 season than "an embarrassment of riches." Dvořák's New World Symphony hardly needs an introduction. Among the most popular symphonies of all time, From the New World debuted to "thunderous applause" at Carnegie Hall in 1893, with immediate encores around theworld. Dvořák wrote this masterpiece after studying Native American and African American spirituals in the United States, and became heavily involved inpromoting the success of African American musicians and composers. He fervently believed that the future of American composition lay inthe roots of spirituals and folk music, saying, "They are the folk songs of America and your composers must turn to them."

True to Dvořák’s words, folk and spiritual music is the common denominator for both of the pieces accompanying the New World Symphony. Edmond Thorton Jenkins’ Charlestonia is a rhapsody fororchestra with roots in African and jazz music that predates Gershwin. Additionally, the Shanghai Quartet will perform the world premiere of Edward Hart’s A Charleston Concerto, written in three movements to examine the past, present, and future of our city. Hart takes Dvořák’s advice to heart,seamlessly weaving elements of traditional Gullah music into his concerto. Part of the City of Charleston’s 350th Anniversary Celebration, Charleston and theNew World examines our city’s place in the world and its unique contributions to the genre of classical music.
