The Virginia Symphony Orchestra opens its 100th Anniversary season with the orchestral premiere of Adagio by Eminent Scholar and professor emeritus of music at Old Dominion University Adolphus Hailstork. Celebrating his 80th birthday in 2021, he is considered by many to be the dean of living African-American composers. The beautiful, slow-paced Adagio opens our season on a somber note as we commemorate those who have lost their lives during the pandemic.
As we look back on the century of music making we recognize the VSO musicians as the cornerstone of our orchestra. Richard Strauss’s joyous Concerto for Horn No. 1 brings our own Principal Horn, Jacob Wilder, front and center as the first soloist of our centennial season.
Our final work is one of Mendelssohn’s true masterpieces, his Symphony No. 4 “Italian”. It is filled with echoes of his joy at visiting Italy for the first time- a journey which inspired him to explore new ideas and different paths just as the VSO begins a voyage of discovery looking forward to its next 100 years.
JoAnn Falletta, conductor
Jacob Wilder, horn
Hailstork: Adagio for Strings
Strauss: Horn Concerto No. 1
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4 “Italian”
