Program Notes & Works
Suite from Figaro Gets a Divorce
Elena Langer’s opera Figaro Gets a Divorce is based on Ödön von Horváth’s 1936 play, which draws on characters invented by Pierre Beaumarchais, the playwright behind Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro and Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.
Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Like Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos, the Rhapsody traverses highly expressive Russian romanticism and brilliant virtuosity.
Pictures at an Exhibition
Ravel's orchestral imagination melds magically with Mussorgsky’s responses to his friend Victor Hartmann’s images.
