Concert on tap for next weekend
Maryland Symphony Orchestra will present a concert of German and Austrian favorites at The Maryland Theatre Saturday, Jan. 17, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 18, at 3 p.m.
The program will include Schubert's "Symphony No. 8 'Unfinished,' " first performed in 1865 in Vienna 37 years after the composer's death. The score had been untouched for 43 years.
"Don Juan" by Richard Strauss, was inspired by the young composer's love for his future wife, whom he met in 1887. MSO Musical Director Barry Tuckwell describes the piece as a picture in sound.
