Mezzo-soprano Clara Osowski solos in the world premiere of Will’s Ladies, Minneapolis composer Carol Barnett’s setting of soliloquies (recited by actress Christina Baldwin) of five Shakespearian female lead characters: Portia, Juliet, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth, and Cleopatra. The concert opens with John Tartaglia’s lovely Pavane, one of several works written by the late composer for William Schrickel and the MSO. Pianist Darin Tysdal, MSO Solo Competition winner, is featured in Cécile Chaminade’s rarely-performed Concertstück from 1888, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s beloved Romeo and Juliet, premiered two years earlier, brings down the curtain on the MSO’s 40th season.
