DUKAS The Sorcerer's Apprentice
ROUSSANOVA Suite: Moments of Arrival
SAINT SAËNS Symphony No. 3, Organ Symphony
While The Sorcerer’s Apprentice cautions about the consequences of unleashed power, this opening night piece shows no restraint. Its whirling, brilliant, playful instrumentation rises to an insistent climax as the music evokes visions of marching mops gone wild! Composer Paul Dukas drew his inspiration from that very story as described in the poem by Goethe, and popularized by Walt Disney’s film Fantasia. Elena Roussanova’s Suite: Moments of Arrival sparks wonder and reflection with music illustrating the spirit of nature and the excitement of travel. Saint-Saëns magnetic and heavenly Symphony No. 3 casts its own spell with intensive bursts of organ in a piece that flows, transcends, and swirls the theme to a grand, levitating culmination!
