Colby’s March orchestra program begins with Mozart’s Overture to The Magic Flute. Like Beethoven’s Triple Concerto and Eroica performed earlier in the season, Mozart’s Magic Flute pushes against the limits of classical form and vocabulary as it searches for, but never completely reaches, the freedom of Romanticism that was still a few decades away. The program continues with Glazunov’s virtuosic Violin Concerto featuring violinist Kina Park, before moving to the western-most edge of Northern Europe for a performance of Edvard Grieg’s Symphonic Dances.
