The FWSO’s Jennifer Corning Lucio: Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, and Carlos Simon

Wagner described Beethoven’s seventh symphony as the “Apotheosis of the Dance.” It’s a spot-on description — the music moves and breathes and exults and laments, one of Beethoven’s finest and best-loved orchestral works. For this concert, renowned conductor Anne Manson teams up with FWSO’s principal oboist Jennifer Corning Lucio for Ralph Vaughn Williams’ haunting Oboe Concerto, a work in which each movement ends as it began. Finally, the orchestra completes the program with a work by composer Carlos Simon, composer-in-residence at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
