The concert will begin with a rousing rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s triumphant Procession of the Nobles from Mlada, before moving into Modest Mussorgsky’s sinister Night on Bald Mountain. Also featured will be Maurice Ravel’s melancholic Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte and Edvard Grieg’s fantastic Peer Gynt Suite No. 1. The concert will conclude with Alexander Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor which along with other Borodin compositions became the basis for the Tony winning Broadway musical hit Kismet in 1954 which resulted in such pop standards as Stranger in Paradise, Baubles, Bangles and Beads and This Is My Beloved.
Come enjoy an incredible afternoon of classical music.
