Opening Night – “Nature Nocturne”

This innovative evening connects the stunning outside scenery with the classical sounds inside the concert tent. Many composers were inspired by nature: Grieg, Vaughn Williams, Smetana and Josef Strauss created music with birds, mountains and rivers in mind. Tune your ear for Finnish composer Rautavaara’s actual bird sounds as soloists!


          • Grieg, Evening in the Mountains
          • Vaughn Williams, A Lark Ascending
          • Rautavaara, Cantus Arcticus
          • Smetana, Die Moldau
          • J. Strauss, Village Swallows
          • Mussorgsky, Night on Bald Mountain (Rimsky)
