Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis with violin soloist, Philip Palermo
The all volunteer orchestra, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis presents Power and Beauty in Music featuring violin soloist, Philip Palermo.
The November concert embraces the glory of beauty in music with the Symphony No. 2 by the great German composer, Johannes Brahms. But to set the mood for that work, the exquisite singing violin of Indianapolis Symphony Associate Concertmaster Philip Palermo takes to lyrical heights with Ralph Vaughan Williams "The Lark Ascending". To begin this adventure, Beethoven's dramatic overture to "Egmont" sets the stage for such eloquent contrast by the Vaughan Williams, which in turn, has opened the door to the Brahms musical landscape, a work of pastoral setting, but ranging to emerging emotions that give way to large, complex, but melodic arches. The symphony's four movements find different lyrical preferences, and in the end, a triumphant conclusion and punctuation to the previous musical discoveries.
