TRIUMPHANT EXPRESSIONS of Humanity
September 25, 2021 @ 7:30 pm
Robert Thies, Piano

The program opening the Santa Maria Philharmonic’s 2021-2022 season features a Brahms overture celebrating academia and the human striving for and thirst for knowledge, pun-intended, as multiple German collegiate drinking songs are incorporated into the musical celebration. Beethoven's much-beloved Emperor Concerto featuring pianist and returning Santa Maria Philharmonic favorite/soloist, Robert Thies, was composed amidst Napoleon's bombardment of the composer's hometown of Vienna and at a point in the composer's life during which he was afflicted with complete deafness. It is a work with which the word “heroism” is oft associated and one in which tenderness, incomparable beauty, and grandeur are all on full display in, seemingly, a traversing of the whole spectrum of human expression. Ives' Variations on America explores 'My Country 'Tis of Thee' which, itself as a hymn, explores both freedom and liberty.

There will be a pre-concert lecture presented by Joe Payne that will enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the music. This Pre-Concert Lecture is FREE and open to all concert goers. The lecture will be held in the sanctuary just before the concert, beginning at 6:50PM and ending at 7:10PM.
