Lyrical Dreams

Season Opener

- All three composers on this program write in a lyrical, expressive style, and all three pieces use dreams as subject matter or inspiration. - In Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Samuel Barber depicts a dreamlike evening in Tennessee, set to a poem by 1940’s film critic James Agee. - A child’s voice describes a dream of heaven in the final movement of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, a composer not performed here in nearly ten years.
