UC Davis
Symphony Orchestra: “Humanity and Nature”

Jackson Hall, Mondavi Center

Jeffrey Thomas, conductor

Elgar: Sospiri

The gently sorrowful melodies of Sospiri wield the subtle and soul-crushing power of a sigh. 

Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune

Debussy’s symphonic poem is orchestrated as verdantly as a lush forest. “The afternoon of a faun” portrays a mythical journey filled with beauty, but not without hints of peril peeking through the pines. 

Vaughan Williams: Flos Campi 
with Ellen Ruth Rose, viola, and the University Chorus 

Harnessing the combined power of orchestra and wordless choir, Flos Campi summons the sublime and terrifying power of love in this six-movement suite.

Mahler: Blumine

A gorgeous idyll with a somewhat contentious musical history. It was removed from his Symphony No. 1, but has earned a place of its own in its repertoire.

Respighi: Pini di Roma

A thrilling and complex verdant journey through four movements. Respighi’s extravagant instrumentation lives up to his grand ambitions.
