The Eureka Symphony season begins with a musical journey across nine centuries. George Frideric Handel’s Water Music Suite #2, composed in 1717 for a royal jaunt on the Thames, is followed by Rainbow Body, by Christopher Theofanidis, which transports a melody by the 12th century mystic composer Hildegard of Bingen to the 21st century. The evening closes with Niels Gade’s Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Opus 14. Gade is recognized as a preeminent musician of the 19th century, during what is known as the Danish Golden Age.
