January 22 & 24, 2021

With an exultant finale based on A Mighty Fortress is our God, Mendelssohn’s glorious “Reformation” contains some of the most majestic and heroic music in the repertoire!

Program

J.S. Bach Suite No. 3 in D Major

Slate Wilson Fantasy for Reed Quintet, String Orchestra, and Harp (World Premiere)

Mendelssohn Symphony No. 5, “Reformation”

A little more about the music…

  • It’s hard to believe that something as transcendent as the “Air on the G String” could ever be forgotten, but give Mendelssohn credit for reviving public interest in Bach’s music a century after it was written.
  • PCSO’s principal winds shine in an intriguing new piece by Portland-based composer Slate Wilson.

Available by subscription only until August, 2020.
