The Deal

The Program

  • Prokofiev—Love for Three Oranges: drawn from an operatic, if decidedly silly, farce, the suite tracks the emotions of a prince cursed to fall in love with a piece of fruit with equal parts bombast and mirth
  • MacDonald—The Orchid Garden: making its world premiere, Canadian composer Andrew MacDonald’s concerto The Orchid Garden flourishes with colorful blooms of tenor saxophone, demonstrating why the artist won the 1995 Juno Award for Best Classical Composition
  • Mussorgsky—Pictures at an Exhibition: Instantly recognizable for the stately “Promenade” that guides ears through aural renderings of 10 paintings, each with its own distinctive colors and personality. Listeners may feel the same ecstasy that its composer did: “Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord. Like roast pigeons in the story, I gorge and gorge and over-eat myself. I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough.”
