Stéphane Denève, conductor
Hilary Hahn, violin
SMITH arr. Sousa/Damrosch The Star-Spangled Banner
TOWER Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman
SIBELIUS Violin Concerto
MONTGOMERY / co-arr. Norporth Starburst
TCHAIKOVSKY Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy
WAGNER Ride of the Valkyries from Die Walküre
Joan Tower’s fanfare is dedicated to risk-taking women, uncommon women. Violinist Hilary Hahn, an uncommon woman, goes toe-to-toe with Sibelius’ virtuosic concerto. Composer Jessie Montgomery, another uncommon woman, brings an explosive celestial being to life in Starburst. And uncommon women speak powerfully in Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet and Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.
