SPCO Associate Concertmaster Ruggero Allifranchini takes center stage for Mozart’s fifth and final violin concerto, known for its rollicking final movement. The 2nd movement of Haydn’s 63rd Symphony is entitled La Roxelane, named for Roxelana, the powerful and influential wife of Ottoman Emperor Suleiman the Great. The program begins with a powerful miniature for string orchestra by composer George Walker, the first African American composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
