Erkki Melartin: Greatness in the Shadow of Sibelius
Friday, December 2, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
James A. Little Theater
at the New Mexico School for the Deaf
Join us as we explore the first movement of Erkki Melartin’s fabulous, rarely performed
Symphony No. 5, which premiered in 1916. Melartin
wrote music that is rich in
expression, romantic on the edge of modernism, and full of lyrical melodies and
Oliver’s engaging, informative commentary and musical
illustrations by the SFCO will take you inside the music and the life
of this wonderful, undiscovered Finnish composer, followed by a complete
performance of the first movement.
