2021-22 Up Close and Personal with the PSO @Jimmy’s Series
"Strings + One"
Several Hitchcock movies owe much suspense to composer Bernard Herrmann, who knew how to create tension and atmosphere with his music. In this moody selection of powerhouse pieces, PSO players will perform Souvenir de Voyage, Herrmann’s last concert piece. Paired with Milhaud’s “Le Creation du Monde” and other atmospheric works for strings + one, this evening is moody—in the best sense of the word.
This evening’s program will include:
Shostakovich: Piano quintet in G minor Op.57: mvt 1 Lento
Shostakovich: Piano quintet in G minor Op.57: mvt 3 Scherzo: Allegretto
Herrmann: Souvenir de voyage for clarinet and string quartet: mvt 1 Lento
