Audiences will enjoy a variety of different expressions of Johannes Brahms’ genius, carefully gathered together like a rare collection of precious gemstones. Reflected in the vivid coloration are folk influences and the music of Joseph Haydn. Neal calls on the prodigious skills of the Orchestra alongside choral forces under the direction of Hank Dahlman, Director of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Choir.

The program opens with a simple but deeply melodic piece, the St. Anthony Chorale, the origins of which are obscured by time but which may have started life as a traditional tune before it found its way into a wind ensemble composition attributed to Haydn. Whatever its origin, it was then picked up by Brahms and used as a theme for his first orchestral work, now known as Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn, also performed on this program. The theme is gorgeous, and the set of variations that Brahms creates are magnificent examples of his art.

Haydn created settings of The Seven Last Words of Christ in many different forms for both orchestra and chorus. Using five choice excerpts, Neal alternates orchestra with a cappella vocals to create a dramatic and compact narrative.

Next on the program we come back to Brahms for two works that explore his marvelous facility with voice.

Brahms' Song of Destiny (Schicksalslied) is one of his finest choral works. It is followed here by what is very probably an expression of love to his dear, lifelong friend Clara Schumann. The texts for Liebeslieder Waltzes are from G. F. Daumer's Polydora, a collection of folk songs and love poems. The previously mentioned Haydn Variations are next, transporting us to one of the most beloved works in all of the classical repertory: Brahms' glorious Violin Concerto in D major.

We have watched our good friend violinist Chad Hoopes grow from amazing prodigy to full-fledged master of his art in just a handful of years. We are proud to say that Neal and the DPO have been more than incidental in helping usher this talented artist to the world stage. Now he is back to take the lead on the Brahms masterpiece, a work that ranks with those of Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and Bruch as one of The Big Five all-time violin concertos—and rightly so, as it is replete with beautiful melody, rhythmic surprise and heartfelt emotion.

Come join us and peek into this treasure chest of riches.

RYAN SPEEDO GREEN bass-baritone WEBSITE

Ryan Speedo Green has blazed an astounding trail leading from a challenging early life to the great opera stages of the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg Festival, and the Vienna State Opera.

Despite a hard beginning and a stint with juvenile detention at the age of 12, Green graduated with music degrees from Hartt School of Music and Florida State University. Recognition came quickly for the young bass-baritone after his 2011 win at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. After David Bergner wrote of Green and his inspirational win in The New York Times, HarperCollins expressed interest in publishing his biography, Sing for Your Life: A Story of Race, Music, and Family. Even the book has garnered rave reviews; Publishers Weekly called it “gripping and inspiring,” and soprano Renée Fleming described it as “absolutely riveting.”

Don’t miss your chance to hear this man who has inspired so many and the voice that lifted him to international recognition!
