      • RAVEL: Le Tombeau de Couperin
      • COPLAND: Letter from Home
      • KORNGOLD: Violin Concerto

      We welcome back Annelle Kazumi Gregory who “blew the roof off the joint” last season with her performance in the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.
      Maurice Ravel, himself a soldier in the French Army during World War I, composed Le Tombeau de Couperin for piano in 1917, and completed the orchestration in 1919. The work is a memorial to friends of Ravel who died fighting in the war and consists of a series of neo-baroque dances that evoke the delicate harpsichord works of François Couperin.

      Copland’s Letter from Home was written in 1944 as a patriotic work for Paul Whiteman and his Radio Hall of Fame Orchestra. It is a sentimental and nostalgic tone-poem that depicts a soldier on the battlefront, reading a letter from a loved one back home.

      Erich Wolfgang Korngold left war-torn Europe in 1934 and, with Max Steiner and Alfred Newman, established the language of the Hollywood film. The Violin Concerto, composed here in America, is his most beloved concert work, with soaring melodies reminiscent of his greatest film scores such as The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Sea Hawk.
