With music director Michael Hall and featured soloist Andres Sanchez on cello, the Kennett Symphony’s Classically Yours performance focuses on the beauty of the symphonic art form performed amid the beauty of Longwood Gardens. The Kennett Symphony will perform Siegfried Idyll, which served as an astonishingly beautiful birthday gift for Wagner’s wife, Cosima, as it was performed on the steps to her bedroom as she awoke early one Christmas morning. The performance will also feature Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, beautiful for its tragic power and vitality of expression, as well as Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, a beautiful work evocative of the “rococo” style.
