Most of us have important places — where we were born or grew up or studied, where we lived at different stages of our lives, where we traveled on a special vacation. And we often use the word “place” to describe someone’s state of mind, too … “She’s in a great place.”
We’ll follow several composers to their special places. Haydn at the pinnacle of a long career taking advantage of the newest technology for the trumpet. The young Mendelssohn visiting Italy during his “grand tour” of Europe. And New England composer Gwyneth Walker taking inspiration from Robert Frost’s poems about Vermont.
San Diego Symphony trumpeter (and bagpiper) John MacFerran Wilds joins us for the Haydn. We’ll see if he’ll share something about his affinity for Scotland.
