The Idyllwild Arts Academy Music Department takes up the theme for our semester performances, “Isn’t it Romantic?”
Celebrating the romantic musical revolution of Ludwig van Beethoven, our first fall semester concert opens with an overture by Emilie Mayer, the leading female German symphonic composer of the romantic era. Bassoonist, Robert Nael, won the runner-up honor in last year’s Concerto Competition and will be performing the first movement of Carl Maria von Weber’s Bassoon Concerto in F-Major. Finally, the students of the IAAOrchestra, joined by a dozen stellar guest artists, including faculty members, Kai Potts Smith, Marshall Hawkins, and Alexander McLaughlin, will perform the Symphony No. 4 in Bb-Major by Beethoven, a work uniquely connected to the spirit and dazzlingly virtuosic displays of this composer’s famous piano improvisations.
