Tito Muñoz – Conductor | Miró Quartet Barber – Essay No. 1, Op. 12 | Kevin Puts – How Wild the Sea I. The Tide at Sendai | II. Saisei Beethoven – Symphony No. 6
Increasingly recognized as one of the most versatile and exciting conductors of his generation, Tito Muñoz joins the Naples Philharmonic for a performance of Beethoven’s warmest and arguably most beloved symphony, the “Pastoral.” Beethoven was a great lover of nature, and while the symphony conjures images of thunderstorms, country dances and open fields, Beethoven stressed that the work was “more an expression of feelings than a painting.” The program opens with American composer Samuel Barber’s Essay No. 1. Invented by Barber himself, the musical “essay” form resembles its literary counterpart in that it develops a complex work from a single melodic thesis. The orchestra will also be joined by the critically acclaimed Miró Quartet in a performance of a new work by composer Kevin Puts, the 2012 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music, commissioned by the Naples Philharmonic. February 6 & 7, 8 p.m. • Price Starting at $34
