    San Antonio Symphony: The Tyrant's Crush Concerto

    Sebastian Lang-Lessing, conductor
    Stewart Copeland, trapset

    Schmidt Notre Dame – Entr’acte and Carnival Music
    Stewart Copeland “The Tyrants Crush” Concerto
    Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 in C minor, “Organ”  


    French master Camille Saint-Saëns said of his uplifting masterpiece for orchestra and organ, “I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.” The “Organ” Symphony is one of the significant orchestral works of the romantic era, with great tunes, wide ranging colors, masterful counterpoint and a thrilling finale that is second to none. The first half features a true rarity – a concerto for trapset, percussion and orchestra.  


    Soloist Stewart Copeland is one of most inventive and recognizable rock drummers of all time. He has composed for The Police, opera and ballet companies, orchestras and films by Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone. The work celebrates the un-tapped virtuosity of the symphonic percussion section and demonstrates that the distance between rock drummer and timpani virtuoso is not as far as one may think.
