Conducted by Daniel Hege, this program is sure to elicit a smile from seasoned concertgoers and first-timers alike. Haydn’s Symphony No. 90 is not without glimpses into his humorous, prankster side. Influenced by his love for both folk music and for French impressionistic music, Kodaly was able to paint in impressionistic orchestral colors the comedic tale of a Hungarian style Don Quixote in his Háry János Suite. Stravinsky captivates listeners with his ballet music suite The Firebird. Even without the ballet theater, Stravinsky’s music summons the imagination to delight in Russian fairy tales of the magical glowing bird that can be a blessing or a curse to its owner.
