Soprano Jeanine De Bique, described by OperaWire as “one of the most exciting sopranos to catch onstage these days,” will make her New World Symphony debut in selections from Weber’s opera Der Freischütz. The program will include the iconic overture, plus Agathe’s two principal arias.

The program also includes the world premiere of Fanfares from Uhrovec, a short contemporary work by cellist and composer Stephan Koncz, the brother of conductor Christoph Koncz. His work was inspired by the American traditional incidental fanfares for orchestra (think Aaron Copland and John Williams). Koncz’s fanfare is derived from old tunes from the regionl of Slovakka-Hungary that includes the town of Uhrovec.

Also on the program are:

  • Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, Op. 28. Till Eulenspiegel was thought to be a historical figure in northern Germany, known for playing practical jokes on unsuspecting victims, often getting the better of more privileged citizens, such as clergymen or craftsmen.
  • Brahm’s Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90. Says James M. Keller in the program information: “The shortest of Brahms’ four symphonies, the Third is a work of contrasting characters, sometimes introspective (especially in its meltingly beautiful third movement), elsewhere more given to heroic solidity.”
