Livermore-Amador Symphony presents
The charming dance music of Mozart, with the jingle of sleigh bells, sets a delightful scene to open our 57th season. Next, we turn to Saint-Saëns’ beloved Carnival of the Animals. Rich with lyricism and invention, this “Grand Zoological Fantasy” is much more than animal imitation. Its humor is surprisingly human, particularly when paired with the famously clever wit of poet Ogden Nash. Finally, we dive into Tchaikovsky’s groundbreaking first symphony, full of endless melodic inspiration; it evokes the beauty and isolation of a wintry landscape.
Mozart: German Dance No. 3, “The Sleigh Ride”
