Young or not quite so young, music lives in all of us. It’s powerful. Can you hear it? For the 54th time in our history, the beat goes on. From Dvořák to Debussy to Doc, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra celebrates the liberating power of music. Listen with your heart. You’ll find the lost art of relaxation is alive and well whenever the MSO is playing. Settle in, sit back, and relax. And dare to be free — wrapped warmly in the magical sound of a live performance.

Basilica Series

New this year! Full-scale orchestra performances in the glorious surroundings of the Basilica of St. Josaphat, 2333 South 6th Street. All programs begin at 7:30p.

I. Transformation November 16 +17, 2012 Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor | MSO Chorus, Lee Erickson, director Arvo Pärt �������������������Trisagion Hilarion Alfeyev ���Song of Ascent Ravel �����������������������������Suite of Five Pieces from Ma Mére l’Oye (Mother Goose) Strauss �����������������������Tod und Verklärung, Op. 24 (Death and Transfiguration)

Mysterious. Intriguing. Filled with wonder. Four composers, four different perspectives. Which composer will capture your imagination?

II. Contemplation April 12 + 13, 2013 Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor

Ives ���������������������������������The Unanswered Question Wagner �������������������������Prelude and “Liebestod” from Tristan und Isolde Haydn ���������������������������The Seven Last Words of Christ

The space: profound and sacred. Expansive enough for life’s biggest questions. Contemplate the answers in the penultimate surroundings for quiet reflection: The Basilica. Listen as orchestra sections engage in discussion on life, death and everything in between.

III. Remembrance May 17 + 18, 2013 Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor | Jennifer Startt, violin

Prokofiev �������������������������������������Andante, Op. 50bis from String Quartet No. 1 Weinberg ���������������������������������������Symphony No. 2 Vaughan Williams �������������������Concerto in D minor for Violin and Orchestra,   “Concerto accademico” Vaughan Williams �������������������Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

G li n ka

Through the veil of impressionism, their music beguiles and seduces. Debussy’s gentle Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun would shatter musical convention, while his Ibéria is an intoxicating evocation of Spain. Ravel, too, would offer his impression in the Rhapsodie espagnole, while his setting of Shéhérazade explores the exotic.

Find out when the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the energetic PROJECT Trio portray Peter’s adventures with his animal friends in a fresh retelling of Prokofiev’s beloved musical tale.

Lemony Snicket’s The Composer is Dead There’s dreadful news from the concert hall — the composer is dead! In this perplexing musical murder mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra invites you to join the inspector as he interrogates the entire symphonic arrangement regarding their whereabouts at the time of the crime. Starting with the strings and working his way to the percussion, the inspector finds sound alibis and dead ends down every sonic avenue. But one thing’s for sure — nobody is leaving the concert hall until this mystery is solved.

Beyond the Score

Dvorˇák: Symphony No. 9 Whose World?

March 7, 2013  |  7:30p  | Uihlein Hall Edo de Waart, conductor Gerard McBurney, creative director and narrator Presented in collaboration with UWM.

For one evening only, Chicago’s engaging Beyond the Score® program comes to town. Designed for classical music aficionados and newcomers alike, the first half of Beyond the Score® offers a multimedia examination of the score — its context in history, how it fits into the composer’s body of works, and events in the composer’s life that shaped its creation. Dvořák’s New World Symphony is one of the most popular pieces of orchestral music ever written. Here the idea of Echoes of Nations becomes very complex: for Dvořák’s fellow countrymen, this work is perhaps the greatest Czech symphony and expresses the composer’s longing for his homeland. For Americans, this is the first great symphony about America. For African-Americans, this is the first great orchestral work to use themes inspired by their songs and spirituals. For Native Americans, it is the first, and so far the only, great work inspired by Native American music. Learn how this symphony grew out of Dvořák’s abandoned opera based on Longfellow’s Hiawatha epic, and how Longfellow’s inspiration itself mixes North American and European stories and ideas.
