Notes from Maestro Mickelthwate

“The third classics creates a creative balance between the influences of two countries: Russia and France, always connected through art and ballet. Additionally, it is more like a… satisfying meal. First: a smooth French appetizer – Milhaud’s Le boef sur le toit; followed by two exotic second appetizers – Ravel’s Tzigane and Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso violin solo and orchestra; and then the main course, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 …strong, colorful satisfying for the entire taste palette.”
