We’re like totally crankin’ up the Tears for Fears and celebrating one of the most decadent decades of music – the 80s! Relive rock, R & B, and new wave hits from icons like George Michael, Phil Collins, Blondie, Huey Lewis & The News, Robert Palmer, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson, Mr. Mister, Cher, Rush, Kool & The Gang, Tommy Tutone and more. It’s the perfect reason to break out your Swatch watch, tease up your hair, and enjoy some bodacious music!

The Phoenix Symphony
Carlos Izcaray, conductor


GIOVANNI GABRIELI  Canzona per sonare No. 2

GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL  Royal Fireworks Music, HWV 351

GABRIELA LENA FRANK  Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout

SERGEI PROKOFIEV  Classical Symphony, Op. 25 (Symphony No. 1)

 

Handel’s celebratory, upbeat, and vibrant Royal Fireworks Music begins this program under the baton of guest conductor Carlos Izcaray. The program continues with Prokofiev’s first symphony, a landmark neo-classical work inspired by a vision of a Haydn as a contemporary composer. Featuring the Brass section of TPS, Giovanni Gabrieli’s Canzona per sonare No. 2 was composed in the early Baroque period and will surround the audience in glorious, majestic brass music. Gabriela Lena Frank, Composer-in-Residence with the Philadelphia Orchestra whose work was featured in the inaugural season of REVERB, mixes elements of western classical and Andean folk musical traditions with Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout.
