Paul Phillips, music director and conductor
The Stanford Philharmonia presents the West Coast premiere of new music by Anthony Burgess, the British composer-novelist best known as the author of A Clockwork Orange. 2017 marks the centenary of Burgess (1917-1993), who composed Petite Symphonie pour Strasbourg in 1988 to celebrate the 2000th anniversary of the founding of Strasbourg in 12 B.C. Stanford faculty violinist Owen Dalby and his wife, violist Meena Bhasin, perform Mozart's great Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major, K. 364, with Schubert's Symphony No. 6 in C Major concluding the program.
