Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra
Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra (SSO) will present Mozart’s “Symphony No. 29,” Ravel’s “Pavane for a Dead Princess” and “Bolero.”
“Symphony No. 29 in A Major” is, along with “Symphony No. 25,” one of Mozart’s better known early symphonies. Stanley Sadie characterizes it as “a landmark ... personal in tone, indeed perhaps more individual in its combination of intimate, chamber music with a still fiery and impulsive manner.”
“Bolero” is Ravel’s most famous musical composition. “Bolero” epitomizes Ravel’s preoccupation with restyling and reinventing dance movements. It was also one of the last pieces he composed before illness forced him into retirement.
“Pavane for a Dead Princess” is a well-known piece written for solo piano by Ravel in 1899 when he was studying composition at the Conservatoire de Paris under Gabriel Faure. Ravel also published an orchestrated version of “Pavane” in 1910. A typical performance of the piece lasts between six and seven minutes.
