kabaretti conducts mozart & mahler
November 16, 2019 • 8:00 pm - November 17, 2019 PST
Nir Kabaretti, conductor
Anya Matanovič, soprano
Mozart: Exsultate Jubilate, K. 165, Julia Wolfe: Fuel for Strings, Mahler: Symphony No. 4 in G Major
The Symphony is thrilled to welcome American Soprano Anya Matanovič to the stage this concert weekend.* Anya made her professional opera debut as Mimì in the Los Angeles commercial engagement of Baz Luhrmann’s Tony Award-winning production of La bohème and joins the Santa Barbara Symphony with her signature thrilling vocal color for a performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s joyous and virtuosic religious motet Exsultate Jubilate and Mahler’s 4th Symphony. The recipient of several prestigious honors, including a Pulitzer Prize, contemporary composer Julia Wolfe draws inspiration from folk, classical, and rock genres. Julia Wolfe composed Fuel for Strings in 2007 as a joint project with filmmaker Bill Morrison and is the result of a commission from the European string orchestra Ensemble Resonanz. Gustav Mahler’s wondrous Symphony No. 4 is the most accessible of his works. Warm and lyrical, it combines deliberate simplicity with a wealth of invention.
*The Symphony was notified on November 7, 2019, that Lana Kos would be unable to perform as previously scheduled due to illness.
