The Deal

The Program

In one hour (hence the “Symphony in 60”), the Minnesota Orchestra dives into one of Stravinsky’s most colorful compositions, and continues its season-long exploration of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. After the concert, guests may join the Minnesota Orchestra musicians onstage for a Happy Hour celebration.

  • Bach—Brandenburg Concerto No. 3: The composer’s fascination with the Italian style comes through in this concerto, which alternates between small groups of soloists and the full ensemble to become a dynamic musical conversation. It’s also notable for just how happy it is, packing an immense amount of joy into just 10 minutes and stamping each page of its notation with a smiley face.
  • Stravinsky—Petrushka (1947 Revision): One of the five—yes, five—versions of Stravinsky’s colorful ballet, the 1947 Petrushka returns to ideas that preceded even the original 1911 version. While incorporating the composer’s more economical and streamlined later style, it adapts the piece for a concert orchestra rather than the stage and approaches the pianist as “some kind of clownish puppet come to life” (AllMusic.com).

Minnesota Orchestra

Returning from its historic tour to Cuba in May of 2015 and Carnegie Hall last March, the Grammy Award–winning Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times.
