RAVEL Rapsodie Espagnole
GRAINGER Pastoral, from In a Nutshell
MUSSORGSKY (ARR. RAVEL) Pictures at an Exhibition
Be one of the first to hear a new orchestral work by Donnacha Dennehy, a piece the composer says is “inspired by the way people (or our inventions of those people) live on vividly in our minds, even when they are no longer there in real life”.
Ravel’s colorful Rapsodie Espagnole is a magnificent musical homage to Spain and all its beautiful sights and sounds.
To end this enchanting program Principal Guest Conductor Gemma New takes you on a musical gallery tour in Mussorgsky’s most famous composition to view ten pictures on exhibit, from the eerie Parisian “Catacombs” to the tumultuous pealing bells of “The Great Gates of Kiev.”
