DVOŘÁK: The Midday Witch
STRAVINSKY: Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments
SUK: Scherzo fantastique
What’s interesting about this concert:
• The CSO welcomes legendary English conductor Sir Mark Elder to the podium.
• Inspired by Czech lore, The Midday Witch tells of a witch’s promised visit when bells strike noon.
• Stravinsky’s pronouncement that “strings and piano…do not sound well together,” leads to the unusual basses-only setup of Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments.
• The spectacle of Janáček's Sinfonietta, with its company of 25 brass players, should be seen as much as heard.
This concert is part of Series 2.
