Sat., March 23, Folsom Symphony
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, 7:30 p.m., $20-$55
Maestro Michael Neumann will conduct the Folsom Symphony through three important pieces in a program called Our Magnificent Horns. Robert Schumann's “Konzertstück” in F major for Four Horns and Orchestra, op. 86 is considered a “masterwork for the full quartet” and features the horn throughout, showcasing the instrument family's range. Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 3 was composed for the natural horn and features a horn solo. The only 20th-century piece is Ralph Vaughan Williams' “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis,” which will be a wonderful counterbalance to Schumann and Brahms because it's focused on the string section. 10 College Parkway in Folsom, http://folsomsymphony.com.
