PROGRAM

Grammy Award-winning conductor JoAnne Falletta returns to Sarasota for this colorful program. Ravel originally composed his beloved Mother Goose Suite for the children of dear friends. The sounds of the Charleston, ragtime, and blues pervade Gershwin's unforgettable Piano Concerto. Pianist Aaron Diehl brings the work's infectious rhythms and melodies to life. The concert concludes with Rachmaninoff's technicolor Symphonic Dances, a vibrant work that ranks among his most thrilling compositions.

Reviews

Written byHerald Tribune

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.  

Written byThe Observer

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.  

Written byThe Observer

 The Sarasota Orchestra returned to its strongest suit, the Masterworks Series, with a concert that allowed every facet of its jewel to sparkle.
