Program Notes for Minor Details, Major Decisions

Program Notes for the Minor Details, Major Decisions concert are provided by Professor Renee McCachren of Catawba College.

The entire 2014-15 Season for the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra is framed as a series of “Puzzles.”  The puzzler for this concert poses the question “What?” in relation to “Minor Details, Major Decisions.”  While this title is a quote from a Sondheim song from Sunday in the Park with George, this is not the underlying rationale for the concert.  Try to solve the puzzle as you peruse the program notes!

Overture to Don Giovanni
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a highly versatile musician who created masterworks in every major genre of his day, was among the most important opera composers in the history of music.  Don Giovanni, one of his greatest contributions to that genre, is among the most frequently performed operas in the world.  Based on the story of the libertine Don Juan, the work was created in collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte and premiered in Prague in 1787.  Because of its blend of serious and comic elements, it is identified as a dramma giocoso.
