Doc’s Classical Playlist: A Severinsen Celebration

About this Concert:

Doc Severinsen leaves his trumpet in its case and takes the mic to share personal stories about his hand-picked classical favorites performed by the Minnesota Orchestra.

COPLAND
Fanfare for the Common Man

TCHAIKOVSKY
Allegro non troppo, from Piano Concerto No. 1

VERDI
Overture to La forza del destino

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV
Selections from Scheherazade

MAHLER
Adagietto, from Symphony No. 5

RAVEL
La Valse

Fun Facts:

  • Carl H. Severinsen, Jr., was nicknamed “Little Doc” because his father Carl Sr. was the town dentist.
  • At the age of seven, Little Doc asked for a trombone, but because the local music store had none, his father brought a trumpet home instead.
  • Severinsen was the music director of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson for most of the program’s 30-year run.
  • Severinsen became the Minnesota Orchestra’s pops conductor laureate in April 2007, after completing 14 seasons as principal pops conductor.
  • Mahler’s music is often thought of as heavy, but the Adagietto from his Symphony No. 5 is touching music that reveals the softest parts of this tortured genius’ heart.
  • A show-off piece for a great orchestra and a great hall: Ravel’s La Valse begins quietly but its thunderous final pages will bring down the house. Pianist Andrew Staupe, a native of St. Paul, has performed with the Minnesota Orchestra 11 times since his debut in 2006.
  • Attention Jingle Bell Doc fans! Please note that Doc will not be performing here in December 2017—so if Doc is part of your annual concert-going tradition, then you won’t want to miss seeing him on the Orchestra Hall stage during Sommerfest.
