Dvořák’s haunting Nocturne in B major opens the program, followed by Sibelius’ Valse Triste (“sad waltz”), reflecting the dreams of a son facing the impending death of his mother. In his Concerto Grosso No. 1 for two violins, harpsichord and prepared piano, Schnittke twists a familiar Baroque form into something entirely new, including modifications to the physical instrument of the piano.

Continuing the season theme, the orchestra performs Mozart’s familiar “great G minor” Symphony No. 40. Read more…
