Synopsis:

The famous gates of Kiev close out Modest Mussorgsky’s monumental Pictures at an Exhibition. Anything but “modest”, the triumphal ending of this beautiful collection of ingenious pieces in Ravel’s unforgettable arrangement for orchestra are sure to strike an emotional chord.

In Gabriela Lena Frank’s richly inventive Concertino Cusqueño cultures collide as the composer imagines taking one of her musical heroes on a colorful journey to the ancient Peruvian highlands of Cusco, the ancestral homelands of the Incas.

The orchestra’s principal trumpet player, Nitiphum Bamrungbanthum, steps forward to the soloist’s podium in James Stephenson’s playful First Trumpet Concerto. Nitiphum is one of the Kingdom’s most exciting musical prospects – a wonderful opportunity to hear him in a breakout performance.

American Jeffery Meyer takes us on multi-continental and culturally rich journey around the musical globe.
