Paul Phillips, music director and conductor
The husband-wife duo of violinist Owen Dalby and violist Meena Bhasin perform Mozart's great Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major, K. 364, to open this Stanford Philharmonia concert, followed by the West Coast premiere of a composition 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. Schubert's Symphony No. 6 in C Major concludes the program.
