From Russia with Love
Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Overture conveys the passion and hatred in the events
of Shakespeare’s play, and Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances are vital, expressive and
inventive. Glazunov, in his Saxophone Concerto, demonstrates a fine understanding
of the instrument, and we look forward to its performance by Haverhill Competition
winner, Anthony Brown. Prokofiev’s 1st Violin Concerto, with soloist Jaroslaw Nadrzycki,
is a wonderful concerto in the hands of a wonderful violinist!
