The Height of Romanticism

Oakland East Bay Symphony

Oakland East Bay Symphony The Height of Romanticism

The essence of Romanticism abounds in two vastly different works from two eras and regions: Tchaikovsky's turbulent Symphony No. 4 and the Suite from "Vertigo" by famous film composer Bernard Herrmann, who scored some of Alfred Hitchcock's most famous films. 2011 is the centennial of Herrmann's birth, and Oakland East Bay Symphony will observe this occasion by performing his Suite from "Vertigo", whose dramatic melodies convey the main character's obsessive love.

OEBS also presents the fourth and final New Visions/New Vistas premiere by bandleader, composer and drummer Scott Amendola, who was named "MVP" of the 2009 Bay Area jazz scene by the San Francisco Chronicle. Amendola will play drums, percussion and electronics on his piece and will also be joined by Nels Cline, lead guitarist of the alternative rock band Wilco, and bass player Trevor Dunn.
