Guest artist: Carlos Aguilar, flute (2015 Young Artists Winner)

Guest conductor Michael Gerdes leads a perennial favorite, Pictures at an Exhibition, composed when Mussorgsky was 35. That should have been the midpoint of a great career, but–tragically–he was dead only seven years later. LJS&C Young Artists first-place winner Carlos Aguilar plays Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, a very playful (and a very funny) piece of music. Vivian Fung offers her own set of “pictures" in a colorful musical response to works of public art from the 2014-16 Vancouver Art Biennale.

Verdi composed his magnificent Requiem in 1874, when he was in his sixties and thought that he had retired. His Requiem happened almost by accident: Verdi proposed that a setting of that great text should be made by a group of composers, but when the others dropped out, he wrote the whole thing himself. Millions of music-lovers have been grateful ever since for Verdi’s un-retirement. The symphony and chorus will be joined in this production by guest choruses and operatic soloists for the concert event of the season.

Another re-imagining of what the symphony might be. In 1969 the 44-year-old Luciano Berio confronted the imposing heritage of Beethoven and Mahler and composed his Sinfonia, for orchestra and vocal octet, performed here by Kallisti under the artistic direction of Susan Narucki. Also on the program are Beethoven’s majestic Violin Concerto, with soloist David Bowlin, and Rossini’s much-loved overture.

In between come Glass’ Piano Concerto, inspired by the journey of Lewis and Clark, with soloist Lisa Moore, and the premiere of Erik Griswold’s colorful orchestral work Jeux à la fin du monde (Games at the end of the world), itself inspired by the music of Debussy and Lutoslawski.
