RSO Presents: Dreams of the Fallen
Coronado Theatre Rockford, IL
Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings
Jake Runestad Dreams of the Fallen
Jeffrey Biegel, piano
Antonín Dvořák Symphony No. 5 in F major, op. 76
Rockford native Jake Runestad calls his Dreams of the Fallen “A Musical Response to War”, which seeks to express life through the eyes of a soldier, both during combat and after returning home. The RSO has co-commissioned this powerful work, featuring pianist Jeffrey Biegel and the Mendelssohn Chorale. Barber’s Adagio for Strings, written in 1936 and a familiar icon of mourning and cathartic pathos, opens the program. Dvořák’s Fifth Symphony offers a bucolic and cheerful antipode, displaying the young Czech composer’s emerging confidence in his talent
