About the event

Mabel Daniels Deep Forest

Joseph Haydn Trumpet Concerto featuring Eric M. Berlin

Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral”

Netta Hadari, guest conductor


Concert length is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes with a brief intermission.

Please note: the pre-concert talk has been canceled due to illness. Professor Schneider's notes are available in the concert program.

The PVS presents a collection of pieces evocative of the beauty and power of nature, opening with Mabel Wheeler Daniels’ enchanting Deep Forest, punctuated by Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto, and closing with Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

Rediscover Mabel Daniels, a turn of the 20th-century female composer from Boston, who composed Deep Forest at the MacDowell Colony in NH, and premiered it at Carnegie Hall in 1939. Feel revived by Haydn's bright and virtuosic Trumpet Concerto, with Yamaha Performing Artist and UMass Professor of Trumpet Eric M. Berlin. Visualize the lush landscapes Beethoven paints in the beloved Pastoral Symphony.
