Kevin Rhodes leads Pro Arte in the overture to Don Giovanni, with wit and tragic energy as only Mozart can produce. We bring one of Ravel’s most popular and inspired works, a light reflection on the loss of his friends in World War I and the sensibilities of the French Baroque dance suite. Rhodes lifts our spirits further with the last of Beethoven’s early period, the noble, playful and emotional Second Symphony.
