Anchorage Symphony's "Shades of Passion" 2018


Anchorage Symphony’s “Shades of Passion”

March 3rd

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.
