A SCOTTISH FANTASY

Dance-like themes and lyrical folk melodies dominate Prokofiev’s Russian Overture – a charismatic miniature symphony for a zealous large-scale orchestra. American violinist Andrew Sords masterfully interprets boisterous reels and tuneful airs in the charming Scottish Fantasy by Max Bruch. Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 7 is a memoir of fantasy and imagination, encompassing the composer’s life in his final farewell to symphonic form.
7:10 p.m. Prélude: pre-concert recital.
7:20 p.m. Pre-concert talk.
Intermission discussion and Q&A with Andrew Sords and Michael Berec.
