The Bells
Saturday 8:00 pm May 9, 2015
Sunday 2:30 pm May 10, 2015

Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale figures throughout our May program, all under Maestro Vajda’s brilliant leadership. Local composer Pablo Furman’s premiere introduces the ‘bell’ motif with the choral voices. Debussy’s Nocturnes treats women’s voices as instruments, blending them with the orchestra to evoke the shifting sea.  Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Bells, which evokes changing bell-tones using the melody of words, inspired Rachmaninoff’s brilliant adaptation - a choral symphony that was his favorite of all his works.

This concert is part of Subscription Series A, B, C, & D.

Conductor: Gregory Vajda
Soloist(s): Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale
  • Pablo Furman: Overture for Orchestra and Choir (World Premiere)

  • Claude Debussy: Nocturnes

  • Sergei Rachmaninoff: The Bells

This follows the return of the Chorale and orchestra in Vaughan Williams elegiac Serenade to Music; and the evening is capped by Schumann’s magnificent, almost euphoric Rhenish Symphony. English maestro William Boughton will bring the year to a brilliant close.

This concert is part of Subscription Series A, B, E, & F.

Soloist(s): Julian Schwarz, Cello
Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale
