STRENGTH OF SPIRIT

Andrew Crust, conductor |

Yaoyue Huang & Scott Sherman, Piano Soloists

From the freshness of youth to man’s heroic triumph over fate, the Lima Symphony Orchestra comes to life in a program that spans centuries and styles but unites in strength and brilliance. Maestro Andrew Crust’s debut concert hints at the diverse and colorful programming planned for this landmark season. Lili Boulanger’s youthful exuberance belies her sophisticated style, which is on full display in “D’un matin de printemps,” a charming work full of nuance and playfulness. Poulenc’s “Concerto for 2 pianos” is the most modern work on the program, with sounds that span from Mozartian classicism to the exotic and transfixing tones of the Balinese gamelan. Finally, Beethoven’s monumental Fifth Symphony speaks to strength in the face of adversity and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
