The MSO continues its celebration of the 1930s — the decade in which Warner Grand Theater was built — and welcomes Timothy McAllister, a musician of “evocative and bravura alto sax playing” (Classical Review), to perform Ibert’s lively and lyrical Concertino da camera. Guest conductor Thomas Wilkins leads Hanson’s “Romantic” Symphony; this symphony’s fingerprints can be found in movies such as Alien, which borrowed its theme, and E.T., which John Williams modeled after this symphony. Hanson set out “to create a work that was young in spirit, lyrical and romantic in temperament, and simple and direct in expression.”
