Masterworks Concert 5 - Czech This Ot
Bohemia, now part of the modern-day Czech Republic, continues to this day to be a hotbed of musical excellence, with an impressive array of performers and composers who have left a lasting mark on our musical heritage. All three of our works in March celebrate these Bohemian roots. Mozart's regal and vibrant "Prague" Symphony was dedicated to the citizens who adopted him as their own. We will also continue to honor our talented musicians from within the ranks of the ASO with our principal oboist, Alicia Chapman, performing Martinu's inventive and surprising Oboe Concerto. The evening culminates in three evocative tone poems based on Bohemia's beauty and mystery. The high castle overlooking Prague, the beautiful Danube River, and a Bohemian legend are all parts of Smetana's proud musical testament to his homeland, Má Vlast.
