University Symphony Orchestra ASU Chamber Orchestra A Celebration of Unity and Design: a concert in honor of the new Herberger Institute Katie McLin, violin Thomas Landschoot, violoncello Timothy Russell, conductor School of Music Herberger Institute for Design and The Arts Arizona State University Wednesday, September 30, 2009 7:30 p.m. ASU Gammage
University Symphony Orchestra
Greetings from Kwang-Wu Kim Dean and Director of The Herberger Institute for Design and The Arts
Overture to Consecration of the House, opus 124...Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Concerto for Violin, Violoncello, & Orchestra in A minor, opus 102.........................................Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) Allegro Andante Vivace non troppo Katherine McLin, violin Thomas Landschoot, violoncello
ASU Chamber Orchestra
Orchestra Suite No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068.......Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Overture Air Gavottes Bourrйe Gigue University Symphony Orchestra
Finale from Symphony No. 4 in E flat Major (Romantic)...Anton Bruckner (1824-1896)
This concert is offered in honor of the new Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. The featured composers, four B's, make musical reference to "building blocks" (b's), as we are building something new at ASU. Beethoven's overture was written for the dedication of a concert hall and on this program serves two purposes: it pays tribute to architecture's connection with music in a general way as well as musically dedicating our new Institute while performing and listening to music within one of the world's greatest concert halls. Brahms's "double" concerto is symbolic of bringing two Colleges together at ASU under one "roof" as a new Institute. Without question, J.S. Bach was one of the most "design conscious" composers of all time. His Suite No. 3, complete with trumpets and drums, was conceived for a festive occasion (which this certainly is). Bruckner's monumental Symphony No. 4 (the "Romantic" Symphony) was written to convey "the visionary power of a journey getting ready to take place." This certainly describes the launching of the new Herberger Institute. Out of respect for the performers and those audience members around you, please turn all pagers, cell phones, and watches to silent mode. Thank you.
