Jungho Kim, Guest Conductor The orchestra will present Johann Sebastian Bach’s, Air from Suite in D Major, BWV 1068 which consists of five movements composed with strings and a small group of winds and percussion. Movements are based on French dances. Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 45 in F# Minor “Farewell” is probably one of the more familiar and frequently performed of the symphonies. The musicians were away from family longer than expected. Longing to return, Haydn, put his request into the music of the symphony and each musician snuffs out their candle and leaves the stage with only two musicians left. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is a well-known example of lyric opera, to which Tchaikovsky added music of a dramatic nature. The story concerns a selfish hero who lives to regret his blasé rejection of a young woman's love and his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend. ”Polonaise” a stately dance is from Act 3 of the opera. Les préludes is the third of Franz Liszt's thirteen symphonic poems. One of the composer's earliest tone poems, it's by far his most popular. It's a dazzling, beautiful, free-flowing piece, the flagship for Liszt's daring style of "new music".
