DESCRIPTION

Music Director Teddy Abrams opens the 2016 Britt Orchestra season with a new commission by celebrated Russian-American composer Lev Zhurbin, whom The New York Times has called, “strikingly original and soulful.”

The Russian program continues with Shostakovich’s complex and powerful First Violin Concerto, featuring Ray Chen.

Stravinsky’s Petrushka was written as a ballet that revolves around a deadly love triangle among puppets who suddenly come to life — Petrushka, a ballerina and a Moor.

The concert ends with one of the most popular pieces of orchestral music: Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. Written to celebrate Napoleon’s retreat from Russian, the piece finishes with a climax of brass fanfare, ringing chimes and the sounds of cannon fire.
