April 7, Bavarian Philharmonic Music Director Mark Mast leads the all-German repertoire celebrating Germany’s musical and spiritual history. Following the foreboding and joyous overture to Carl Maria von Weber’s opera Der Freischütz, DU Professor of Clarinet Jeremy Reynolds performs Weber’s innovative and impressive Clarinet Concerto No. 1. Two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Lutheran chorales, Ein feste Burg and Jesu, joy of man’s desiring, celebrate 500 years of Reformation. And the evening concludes with Paul Hindemith’s contemporary Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Weber.
