Music & Wine Set for Modern String Landscapes

We have partnered with a local Sommelier, Carl Andrews, to create a special evening of Music & Wine for your at-home concert enjoyment. Carl has made selections from 6 local wineries that we think will enhance your evening with the WFSO’s first program, “Modern String Landscapes”. 

WFSO ON-DEMAND subscribers can enhance their concert experience with wines specifically selected for each piece on the concert, giving you an opportunity to choose what may satisfy your artistic palate for the evening. Just as a great food and wine pairing enhance a dining experience, the musical notes of our concerts compliment the tasting notes of North Texas vintners! Subscribers will have the choice of any of the wines listed below, as well as a custom charcuterie board provided by Brie Charcuterie.

Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525

A little night music

  • Meant as outdoor background music

  • Overall cheery & light-hearted tone

  • Charming & vivacious

  • Suave & sophisticated

MORESON |Miss Molly Nectar Royale

“fresh bursts of ripe cherry, strawberry, lime and animal crackers”

Blue Ostrich Winery & Vineyard | Viognier

Dry white wine that is crisp and aromatic with essence of stone fruits on the nose and a clean finish.

PAIRING NOTES:

The perfect pairing is something with a hint of sweetness from the intense fruit on the nose and palate which signals “sweetness” to your senses. You may be surprised that a “fruit forward wine” will fool you into believing there is a higher level of residual sugar. This can be the case in either red or white wines.  Rieslings, Sauvignon Blanc and some Chardonnay. I think you will agree the Miss Molly Nectar Royale is the perfect accompaniment for Eine Kliene Nachtmusik.

Emmanuel Sejourne: Concerto for Marimba and Strings

Something for everyone

  • Satisfies diverse musical palettes

  • Eclectic – with classical, Latin, & jazz flairs

  • Evocative & provoking

  • Vibrant & passionate

Hook & Ladder | Texas 101 Reserve Red Blend

This is a big romantic Texas red blend that is full of ripe dark fruit, jammy on the palate and hints of violets on the nose.

6th Street Winery  | Sixth Symphony White

This fruit forward “sweet, not sweet wine” shows a Muscat-like, aromatic bouquet that balances sweetness with acidity and finishes crisply.

PAIRING NOTES:

This work is definitely a dream and deserves dreamy pairings.  As with each symphonic selection, I have tried to offer something to appeal to a diverse audience. I have selected both a red and a white that will send your palate on equal flights of drama and romance.

 

 

Shostakovich: Chamber Symphony (String Quartet no. 8)

A lament

  • Powerfully haunting

  • Dark & serious

  • Mournful

  • Deeply personal

OG Cellars | 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

This bold, full-bodied red will beguile you with hints of blackberries and plum with a peppery finish.
Barrel fermented and aged two years in American oak.

MORESON | Pi-Not-Age Nouveau Cape Blend

This dry red blend from the Western Cape of South Africa is as complex and romantic as the Shostakovich with Coriander, Sun Dried Tomato, Tarragon, Cured Meats,
dried Cherry and Cranberry.

PAIRING NOTES:

The perfect pairing for this piece is a deep, big red wine with dark fruit on the palate and spice on the nose that echoes the lush strings especially in the 5th movement.
