David Afkham Conducts La Mer

April 15, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Four pieces of orchestral artwork are showcased in this intensely expressionistic program led by acclaimed conductor and regular Minnesota Orchestra guest David Afkham. Ring of Fire and Love evokes an “earth-shattering, creative and cataclysmic moment,” as described by composer Outi Tarkianien. Richard Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder is a set of five musical love letters, sung here by soprano Emily Magee, followed by Lili Boulanger’s introspective and melancholic Of a Sad Evening. The Minnesota Orchestra musicians then create a kaleidoscope of swirling sound in Claude Debussy’s classic portrait of the sea.
