Conductor Delyana Lazarova returns, leading ROCO's full chamber orchestra in a high-octane program brimming with dynamic energy! Elfrida Andree’s colorful, lyrical Symphony No. 2 in A Minor, with its exuberant opening theme, paves the way for the U.S. premiere of Richard Danielpour's "Voci del Purgatorio", a journey to rebirth - the second movement of his Symphony in Three Movements After the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri. Then, thrill to Jessica Meyer’s Go Big or Go Home – a work “written from a place of self-realization, empowerment, and celebration of how joyous life can be”, featuring blues guitar phenom Clay Melton and his band. The Houston Youth Symphony returns as special guest, with a side-by-side performance of Franz Schubert's richly textured and emotionally laden Overture in the Italian Style. Rounding out the program is the Fantasie Homage to Schubert, an alluring work by Bulgarian-British composer Dobrinka Tabakova, whose distinct soundworld has been called “riveting, piercingly beautiful and frequently radiant”.
