Saturday 8p.m., Sunday 3p.m.

In nature’s sublime way, the majestic song of whales emerges like a giant mythical bird in Hovhaness’ And God Created Great Whales.  World-class violinist Irina Muresanu exquisitely personifies a lark in Williams’ The Lark Ascending, soaring high into the skies until its song is lost on “aerial rings.”  The Romanian-born violinist takes bow to strings to express her affinity for her native land in Enescu’s Rumanian Rhapsodies No.1. Illustrating his intense love of the natural world, Beethoven vividly paints a landscape in his “Pastoral Symphony.” Copland provides a lyrical and energetic arrangement of the familiar celebration tune.
