Vallejo Symphony Concert 2

“Poetic Genius”

Christian Baldini, conductor
Carrie Hennessey, soprano

Mika Pelo, ‘Satellite’
Celebrated Mozart and Verdi Arias, with Carrie Hennessey, soprano
Schumann, Symphony No. 1 in B-flat Major Op. 38 ‘Spring’

“What a delight it is to share with you a program featuring wonderful composers that I admire and that I feel very close to. Mika Pelo is a Swedish composer of great imagination and breadth of expression. His compositions are performed internationally, and he is also a Berkeley resident, which makes featuring his music to local audiences even more exciting. Verdi and Mozart are two of the most important operatic geniuses, and we will be featuring them with the phenomenal soprano Carrie Hennessey. Dramatic, surprising and tender music is going to prepare you for Schumann’s energetic and beautiful Symphony No. 1, which was sketched in just five days, and completed shortly thereafter. In it, Schumann found a fresh way to describe through his music a poem by Adolph Böttger, whose last stanza reads “In the valley spring blooms forth!”

–Christian Baldini
