Andreas Delfs, conductor
Erik Behr, oboe (Principal, The Dr. Jacques M. Lipson Chair, funded in perpetuity)

SAINT-GEORGES   Overture to L’amant Anonyme (The Anonymous Lover)
MORRICONE “Gabriel’s Oboe” from The Mission
CARLOS SIMON   An Elegy: A Cry from the Grave
SCHREKER   Kammersymphonie (Chamber Symphony)

One of the earliest Black classical composers and playwrights, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges’ overture to his renowned opera, L’Amant Anonyme (The Anonymous Lover), was performed exclusively for the nobles and royals of late-1700 France. Enrico Morricone’s “Gabriel’s Oboe” is used as the central theme for the 1986 film, The Mission, and has since been arranged and performed by some of classical music’s greatest artists. Dedicated to those who have been murdered by an oppressive power, Carlos Simon’s An Elegy: A Cry from the Grave is an evocative composition drawing on intense lyricism and lush harmonic charter to create a poignant and compelling focus at the intersection of art and social justice. Written amid the First World War, Franz Schreker’s Kammersymphonie (Chamber Symphony) concentrates the essence of his late romantic/expressionist style into a passionate and mesmerizing symphonietta in a single movement.
