Gianandrea Noseda conducts another Philadelphia first: the tuba featured as solo concerto instrument in a subscription concert. Michael Daugherty wrote his Reflections on the Mississippi for tuba and orchestra expressly for Principal Tuba Carol Jantsch, making her subscription debut. They worked closely together to shape the piece. She says he concluded that the existing solo tuba repertoire leaned more heavily on flash than soul, and she was very happy to help him correct that balance in this piece. It’s based on a trip along the Mississippi, reflecting the musical cultures found along the riverbanks. Jantsch says, “It’s just beautiful melodies, extremely fun to play ... and listen to as well.” She never gets tired of hearing people say of her performances: “I didn’t know the tuba could do that!” The Daugherty will be followed by Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, the first of his “middle” period. Opening with a distant and ominous trumpet call, the Symphony progresses to a celebration of love and joy.
