DVORAK............Serenade for Strings
BACH.................Oboe d'amore Concerto
BEETHOVEN......Symphony No. 5
Benjamin Rous, conductor
Sherie Aguirre, oboe
The first four notes are probably the most well known in the world. But in a society of short sound bites, we should not forget that Beethoven’s fifth symphony is a masterpiece in its entirety! Before the VSO guides you through all the devious twist and turns of the fifth symphony, enjoy the dance like melodies, off-set with tender moments, of Serenade for Strings by Dvořák. The VSO will also feature one of its own, principal oboist Sherie Aguirre, in Bach’s Oboe d’amore Concerto.
