Bob Cole Conservatory Symphony

Johannes Müller Stosch, conductor

This is a concert not to be missed. Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Juan, is a standard classical string audition piece. The complexity of this composition is well-known and feared among orchestral players. This work demonstrates the maturing virtuosity of the BCCM orchestra members, who have previously performed Ein Heldenleben, Don Quixote, Till Eulenspiegel, and Death and Transfiguration. Bernstein’s famous Candide overture will give you an introduction to BCCM’s full production of the opera this spring. A movement from Bruckner’s Romantic Symphony, coupled with a concerto written by a alumnus Vasken Ohanian for Emilio Valdez, winner of the 2017/18 voice concerto competition, will round-out this special program.

  • Bernstein: Overture from Candide
  • Ohanian: Mountain Songs
  • Bruckner: Andante from Symphony No. 4
  • Strauss: Don Juan, Op. 20
