Stravinsky's Petrushka

BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

HIGDON
Viola Concerto

STRAVINSKY
Petrushka (1947 revision)

Our season-long journey into Bach's wonderful Brandenburg Concertos continues with the Third, beloved for its moments of dance-like joy.

The 10-minutes smile of genius that is Brandenburg No. 3 might well have given rise to the phrase “good things come in small packages.” This concert concludes with Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka—an explosion of glorious color for the full orchestra. But first we're treated to a glimmering new work for strings and solo viola by one of America's leading composers, Pulitzer-winner Jennifer Higdon.
