Sav Phil The Baton: Janna Hymes: Mischievous Musicians
Janna Hymes, Conductor
Nathan Lee, Pianist
Who says music has to be stuffy? Mozart and Rossini are perhaps the music world’s best-loved comedians, but Ibert is no slouch either. His Divertissment, originally written for the theater, pokes fun at famous music of the time, including a send-up of Mendelssohn’s famous Wedding March. Even notoriously-grumpy Beethoven joins in the fun with his lighthearted Eighth Symphony.
MOZART: Piano Concerto #12, A major
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8 in F
ROSSINI: Barber of Seville: Overture
