The "Bon bons" of the first half begin with the energetic Hungarian March by Berlioz. Amitie (Friendship) by French composer Eugene Ysaye is a lesser known piece, though through no fault of its own. It's a forgotten gem. Concertmaster Sarah Kwak and her husband Vali Phillips from the Oregon Symphony perform two works for two solo violins and orchestra. The "meat" of the evening is undoubtedly Beethoven's heroic Fifth symphony, arguably the best known of all classical music. Join us for an exciting evening of contrasts: forgotten elegance and an iconic pillar of the symphonic repertoire.
