“It has become that time of evening when people sit on their porches, rocking gently and talking gently and watching the street…” Nostalgia can sometimes be the strongest emotion of all. Samuel Barber knew that when he created a long, blissful musical daydream of a Midwestern childhood. Leonard Bernstein knew it too: there’s solitude as well as thrills when he takes Manhattan in On the Town. And Sergei Rachmaninov, exiled forever from Russia, explored new worlds in a glittering, Art Deco streamliner of a Third Symphony that never quite shakes off its sense of loss. No-one knows how to make this music soar and glow quite like our Associate Guest Conductor, John Wilson.
