Thoughts from Morihiko
“To work as a conductor with a group of talented and passionate professional musicians like the S.C. Phil, in a community of supportive and open-minded audiences like Columbia, is a true blessing. I am fortunate to have been involved in many memorable musical moments over the last five years, so I would be hard pressed to pick my favorite. Our collaboration with the incredible Bela Fleck and the Flecktones in 2010, though, is definitely hard to surpass. Following that performance, Bela told me about this new banjo concerto that he was working on for a premiere in Nashville. To continue our 50th celebration, Bela returns to the Koger to play his new concerto, which has been hailed as ‘a tour de force of musical intelligence, wit, and restless creativity’ with hints of blues and bluegrass.
Anticipating there will be several first time SCP listeners at this signature event, I have selected two works that will hopefully entice them for many more return visits. Berlioz’s dazzling Roman Carnival Overture is exhilarating and sure to quicken everyone’s pulse, while Dvorák’s Bohemian folk-music-inspired Symphony No. 8 with its memorable melodies, rich sonorities, and exciting climaxes is a perfection gateway to the grandeur and passion of live symphonic music.”
