PULLMAN, Wash. A free, public concert of “Mediterranean Inspiration” will transport the audience at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, at Washington State University’s Bryan Hall Theatre.
The WSU Symphony Orchestra will open with Beethoven’s “Coriolan Overture.” Beethoven was inspired by the story of Coriolanus and his desire to invade Rome. Tchaikovsky’s “Capriccio Italien” and Chabrier’s “Espana” will follow.
The concert will conclude with French composer George Bizet’s second “L’Arlesienne” suite. L’Arlesienne loosely translates to “the girl from Arles,” which is a city in the south of France.
Mathew Aubin conducts the symphony orchestra. His bio is available at http://libarts.wsu.edu/music/faculty-staff/?a=matthew.aubin.
