Points of interest:

Felix Mendelssohn was greatly interested in the music of Bach, and he was important for keeping alive the music of Bach, Handel, and Schubert by conducting works of these composers.

Noted composer Henry Mollicone was commissioned by Brian Holmes, another noted composer, to write the horn concerto to be premiered at this concert.

California’s recent wildfires made such an impression on Leslie LaBarre, she wrote a movement about them in her California Suite.
