Finale Concert: Romantic Russians
Merced Theatre, 301 W Main St, Merced
season ends with grandiose and colorful music by three Russian
masters. Rimsky-Korsakov was considered one of the greatest orchestrators,
and his Russian Easter Overture has a full palate of orchestral
colors. Tchaikovsky’s grand Marche Slave brings power to
this season finale concert, but nothing could be more impressive
then Mussorgsky’s famous Pictures at an Exhibition. Mussorgsky
was inspired by Hartmann’s artwork and musically depicted
some of his friend’s sketches and drawings in this musical
masterwork. Orchestrated by Maurice Ravel, nothing could celebrate
Merced Symphony’s 60th anniversary season than this explosive
and brilliant work!
Slave, Op. 31
