A Jacobs Masterworks Concert
Rafael Payare, conductor
Steven Schick, percussion
BERLIOZ: Roman Carnival, Op. 9
ROBERTO SIERRA: Con madera, metal y cuero (Percussion Concerto)
PROKOFIEV: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, Op. 100
Our “It’s About Time” percussion festival opens with a program of works suffused with orchestral color and rhythm. Hector Berlioz’s boisterous Roman Carnival contains the Italian saltarello dance at its core. Serge Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 bristles with energy, often driven by inexorable “tick-tocks” coming from the percussion section. Guest soloist and festival curator Steven Schick will be at the center of a virtual menagerie of wood, metal and skin in Roberto Sierra’s Percussion Concerto.
