Anchorage Symphony's "Shades of Passion"
Randall Craig Fleischer, conductor
featuring Megan Bledsoe Ward, harp
Tchaikovsky | Romeo & Juliet Fantasy Overture
R. Murray Schafer | Concerto for Harp & Orchestra
Scriabin | Symphony No. 4, Poem of Ecstasy
Ravel | Boléro
Opening the evening is Tchaikovsky's "thunderingly dramatic and achingly beautiful" Romeo & Juliet Fantasy Overture. Scriabin’s aptly titled Poem of Ecstasy delivers on themes of passion, love, and creativity. Hailed by Downbeat Magazine for her “scintillating plays of light and subtle colors,” ASO harpist Megan Bledsoe Ward performs Concerto for Harp and Orchestra by preeminent Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer. What better closer than Ravel’s intense and rhythmic Boléro!
Anchorage Symphony’s “Shades of Passion” is presented by Anchorage Symphony Orchestra.
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES — Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 6 and older.
