The Lone Ranger rides again at the CARMEL BACH FESTIVAL with Rossini’s Overture to William Tell on Friday, July 19th and Friday, July 26th!


The Friday Carmel Bach Festival Main Concerts feature works that are not-to-be-missed classics.

Rossini’s Overture to William Tell  is a miniature symphony in four parts depicting the opera’s Swiss Alps location. From dawn through an approaching storm to its pastoral third section featuring a plaintive English horn and flute duet to the famous wild galloping finish portraying Swiss soldiers heroic battle to liberate their homeland (also used as the theme to the famous radio and television show, The Lone Ranger), the overture is justifiably one of the best-known works in classical music.

The concert concludes with Beethoven’s sunny Fourth Symphony. The work harkens back to Beethoven’s teacher, Haydn, and has an extraordinarily explosive and ferocious final movement.

In the middle of the program are Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and a new work from Carmel composer Mark Mancina, a Suite in Three Movements for solo guitar and orchestra based on his film scores and additional new music. Jason Vieaux is the soloist.
