West Michigan Symphony presents Words and Music at the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon on Friday, February 6th, 2015 at 7:30PM
After inventing the art form of the symphony, the prolific composer Joseph Haydn wrote 104 of them and his last symphony is the work of a mature master with a mischievous sense of humor. Vincent Karamanov performs Mozart's sublime and dancelike bassoon concerto, and the WMS performs Theme and Variations from Mozartiana, Peter Tchaikovsky's own tribute to the immortal Amadeus. If the great works of art could talk, what would they say? Carla Hill narrates Voices from the Gallery, a witty and moving work by the living composer Stephen Paulus.
