Notable Encounter

lecture demonstration

Scott Yoo, conductor

About This Program

Approximate length 2:00

Frequent SPCO guest conductor Scott Yoo has a gift for captivating classical music audiences with his insightful commentary and his ability to explain advanced aspects of musical style and structure through clear musical examples. He brings all of his talents to bear for this deep dive into Berg’s 20th century masterpiece. The first half of the concert will feature commentary and musical examples from the Chamber Concerto, often in subtle arrangements by Yoo himself, followed by a complete performance of the Berg, with SPCO Concertmaster Steven Copes as violin soloist.

Please note: Notable Encounter is Scott Yoo’s own narrated concert format that dives deeply into a single piece of music and dissects it in and interesting an engaging way during the concert. Due to the unique lecture-based nature of this program, there will be no Fanfare discussion prior to the concerts this week. Please adjust your travel plans accordingly.
