Written in the best and worst of times, all three pieces in A Tale of Three Symphonies present different styles of symphonic composition across three centuries. Four of our own musicians — Kimberly Brody, Kenneth Greenwald, Katherine Thayer, and Bryan Scafuri — take center stage for Haydn’s 1792 Sinfonia concertante featuring four instruments in the solo group: oboe, bassoon, violin and cello. Britten’s somber Sinfonia da Requiem, and the contrasting cheerful and optimistic Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 transport us through the 19th and 20th centuries.
