Symphony Parnassus Spring Concert 2014
Our third concert of the 2013-14 season celebrates aspects of Jewish heritage within the classical music tradition. The Hebrides Overture, also known as "Fingal's Cave," was inspired by Felix Mendelssohn's 1829 visit to the Hebrides archipelago off the west coast of Scotland. Ernest Bloch's Schelomo, which premiered in 1917, uses the cello to represent the voice of King Solomon (Schelomo in Hebrew) as depicted in the book of Ecclesiastes. We round off the concert with perhaps the best-known work of the classical repertoire, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, which premiered in 1808.
Music Director Stephen Paulson conducts the program at the SF Jewish Community Center. Featured guest soloist in Bloch's Schelomo is masterful young artist Oliver Herbert, principal cellist in the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra.
