Opening the concert in the beautiful Ellman Chapel at the Ahavath Achim Synagogue, ASO oboist Elizabeth Koch Tiscione performs on English horn with her husband Mike Tiscione, ASO trumpeter, in Aaron Copland’s haunting and evocative 1941 homage to wakeful nights in a great city metropolis. Franz Schubert’s beloved “Shepherd on the Rock” is the composer’s final song and a most unusual one. The multi-sectional work features a wide range of feelings for soprano and adds to the piano accompaniment an elaborate obbligato clarinet part evoking mountains and valleys. The mood of joyful optimism prevails in Schubert’s stunning ending, with its pastoral exuberance and promise of spring’s return. Anchoring the program is Bohemian Antonin Dvorak’s Eb Piano Quartet, beloved for its great warmth of melodies and folk like tunes of the countryside, combined with a symphonic, grand sweep of an ending.
