Cape Symphony presents The Romantics in January 2023

Rock Star Composers Heat Up January Concert

Cape Cod may be cold in January, but the Cape Symphony’s January 21 and 22 Masterpiece concert, The Romantics, will heat things up with rock star classical composers.

Johannes Brahms, Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, and Robert Schumann revolutionized the art of live performance, seducing audiences with their unbridled talent and charisma. These four giants of the Romantic period were more daring and emotional in their work than anyone before them.

Our Cape Symphony French horns will feature in Robert Schumann’s Konzertstück (Concert Piece), a vibrant, high energy concerto. Johannes Brahms’s tuneful, optimistic Academic Festival Overture uses university student songs to create a humorous yet complex and colorful work. The towering Richard Wagner’s Prelude to Die Meistersinger (The Master Singers) includes highlights of the great arias of the opera.

Due to illness, Maxim Lando, our soloist for this weekend’s concert, is unable to perform. The Liszt Piano Concerto No. 1 will now be performed by special guest artist, Ying Li, a rising and exceptionally talented pianist who will be making her Cape Symphony debut with this performance. Jung-Ho and the Cape Symphony musicians greatly appreciate your consideration of the unique circumstances surrounding this program change. We hope to have the opportunity to share Mr. Lando’s artistry with you in the future.

Join the Cape Symphony for The Romantics on Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, January 22 at 3:00 PM at the Barnstable Performing Arts Center, 744 West Main Street, Hyannis MA 02601.
