This performance replaces Debussy & The Mermaid, originally scheduled Saturday, May 8, and Sunday, May 9.
A colorful interplay of BPO musicians Nikki Chooi, Roman Mekinulov, Henry Ward, and Glenn Einschlag, performing solo as well as in duos and quartets, highlight Haydn’s delightful and witty sinfonia, his only effort at the genre. The theatrical, spirited work counters the serenity of Still’s heartwarming rhythms reminiscent of a lullaby, and the angelic, enchanting tone of Dvořák’s dream-like serenade.
