The music of Carl Maria von Weber, a very popular composer at the time Alabama achieved statehood in 1819, figures prominently in the first half of the program. Maestro Gregory Vajda’s intensely personal setting of a poem by W. B. Yeats, Strauss’ penetrating Four Last Songs, and the thrilling overture to Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman bring the orchestra’s sixty-fourth season to a memorable close.
