STRAVINSKY: Funeral Song
ARUTUNIAN: Trumpet Concerto
MUSSORGSKY (orch. Ravel): Pictures at an Exhibition
This concert is a brass lover’s dream. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is a treasured suite of orchestral scenes, a sweeping collection of musical images inspired by an exhibition of paintings by one of the composer’s good friends. Conducted by the world-renowned Andrey Boreyko, this program includes Arutunian’s famous Trumpet Concerto, performed by Norwegian superstar Tine Thing Helseth. Stravinsky’s emotional Funeral Song opens the program in one of its first American performances following its recent discovery.
