Program Notes: 

Maryland-native Andrew Grams returns home to lead a tour-de-force program featuring Dvořák’s pastoral Symphony No. 8. In his eighth symphony, Dvořák invokes folk Bohemian idioms filled with earthy tones and bird-like sounds. Commissioned by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Anna Clyne's five-movement suite Abstractions captures the essence and energy of artwork on exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Gramophone calls Orpheus Chamber Orchestra bassoonist Frank Morelli’s playing “a joy to behold.” In Mozart’s intimate and masterful Concerto for Bassoon, Morelli, part of NOI+F’s 2019 faculty roster, navigates a remarkable diversity of articulation styles and an extraordinary range.
