SANTA BARBARA SYMPHONY
PERFORMS MUSSORGSKY ("PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION") ACCOMPANIED BY ANIMATED FILM AND PRECEDED BY PRE-CONCERT LECTURE
BRAHMS (DOUBLE CONCERTO AND TRAGIC OVERTURE)
Composers throughout history have responded to inspiration from the visual arts, and Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky is one of the most famous examples. Keeping with this theme, the Symphony will perform Ravel’s beautiful orchestration of this masterwork accompanied by an animated film created by students and graduates at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. Interpretations of the music are woven into this animated film, rich with fantasy, whimsy, and adventure.
In addition, the evening will feature Brahms’ daring Double Concerto for Violin and Cello highlighting the exceptional talents of concertmaster Jessica Guideri and principal cellist, Trevor Handy. Join the Santa Barbara Symphony for an evening full of musical and visual wonder.
