Writing a concerto for guitar stretched British composer Joby Talbot's abilities, but his 2018 concerto Ink Dark Moon is an approachable, crowd-pleasing vehicle that demonstrates the fierier capabilities of the guitar in perfect balance with the orchestra. Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture opens the concert with its undulating, wave-like cello lines and tempestuous recollections of Scotland's eerie west coast, and Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, "Eroica," remains one of the purest works of creative genius in the classical canon.
