Saturday To-Do: Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's 'Titan'

Posted By on Thu, Oct 28, 2010 at 4:07 PM


8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$48.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra already did its Halloween-themed concert, but there's no reason you can't don a suit for the orchestra's second Masterworks performance and, post-concert, apply some make-up and be a zombie symphony-goer and join in the revelry nearby at the Peabody or elsewhere around town. Better yet, tote along a frilly blouse and a powder wig to be zombie Mozart, whose music opens new director Philip Mann's third performance of the season. Mozart's overture to "The Magic Flute," written during his fecund final year of life, will play nicely into Strauss' Horn Concerto No. 2, a work that recalls Mozart's style and concludes with a section the ASO describes as "a fiendish test of agility and breath control" for the solo horn player, David Renfro. The orchestra closes with Mahler's Symphony No. 1 "Titan," a work that was widely panned when it debuted in 1889, but which has since helped the composer become one of the most beloved of our era. The ASO reprises the performance on Sunday at 3 p.m.; same place and price, though students, grades K-12, can go for free if accompanied by a paid adult as part of the new Entergy ticket program on Sunday.
