Daniel Meyer conductor
Sharon Isbin guitar
Britten Four Sea Interludes
Rodrigo Fantasía para un gentilhombre
Inspired by tales and impressions of the sea, we’ll begin with Benjamin Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, which churls and sprays notes with tempestuous force. Following, world-renowned guitarist Sharon Isbin makes her triumphant return to the Erie Philharmonic performing Rodrigo’s Fantasía para un gentilhombre. Steeped in rich Spanish musical tradition, the Fantasía is an imaginative and richly-woven musical tale. To finish the program, the Philharmonic will bring Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade to life. Our own concertmaster Ken Johnston will take the virtuoso solo violin role, featuring moments inspired by the Arabian Nights.
