Plymouth Phil Perfect Pairs

We’re all ‘bout the bass—especially when it pairs the principal bassist of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Susan Hagen, with Simón García, one of the most interpreted, international composers on the double bass scene today. This is the North American premiere of García’s stunning concerto, a stirring, sensual, and soulful score just for our sensational strings.  (We have bragging rights when it comes to Susan Hagen, too, as she is the former principal bassist of the Phil.) We’ll add more brilliant orchestral color with another perfect pairing: siblings Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, together on the Phil stage for the very first time.  Very little of Fanny’s music was published during her lifetime. The manuscript for this stunning overture sat in a library in Germany for over 150 years before its discovery. It’s been played around the world ever since. While Felix only visited Scotland once, the place where Queen Mary “lived and loved” inspired his dramatic and romantic Scottish Symphony, known for its breathless, energetic finale.
