OVERVIEW

LET A MASTER’S IMAGINATION INSPIRE YOURS.

Two of Bach’s sparkling Brandenburg Concertos and Boulez’s crystalline Mémoriale, written as a tribute to the late Stravinsky, form an intriguing contrast to the rugged, Nordic music of Sibelius and Grieg. From the floating introduction of the violin solo, you will be drawn into the imaginative, mysterious world of Sibelius’ concerto as performed by the virtuosic Latvian violinist Baiba Skride. And the program will conclude in rousing fashion with selections from Grieg’s incidental music to the fairy-tale play Peer Gynt, including “In The Hall of the Mountain King,” “Morning Mood,” and other favorites.
