This concert features the vast array of colors of the woodwinds and brass. Gounod’s charming Petite Symphonie is more a suite, filled with warm sounds and echos of southern France, while Mozart’s so-called serenade is a virtual symphony in its human pathos. Dvořák gives us ripples of nature and rural life in its folk-dance forms in this program filled with melody, shimmer, and emotion.
