HELP CHOOSE YOUR NEXT MUSIC DIRECTOR.
During the 2019/2020 Season, we fill our city with music and possibilities, and call upon our community to help us choose the next Music Director & Conductor of The Lexington Philharmonic.
Caught by the Wind
Horn Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major
Richard Deane, horn
Symphony No. 2 in D Major
Inspired by the winds that helped propel a thousand-mile cycling journey, Jessie Montgomery’s Caught by The Wind opens the evening with a powerful meditation on the cycle of life. Lexington-native Richard Deane, Principal Horn of the New York Philharmonic, returns to his hometown orchestra as soloist for Strauss’ Horn Concerto No. 1. Deane grew up playing in the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra, and attending Lexington Philharmonic concerts. Brahms’ delightful Symphony No. 2, which famously recycles his well-known “Brahms’ Lullaby,” tops off an evening of works both powerful and ebullient.
