“Dawn over the River Moscow,” the bright-eyed Prelude to Modest Mussorgsky’s unfinished final opera Khovanshchina, lifts the curtain on a mesmerizing musical journey. Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto follows: an impassioned work whose Armenian folk-influenced melodies belie the daunting technical virtuosity demanded of the soloist. The program concludes with scenes from Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet, perhaps the composer’s most deeply felt creation, and music worthy of Shakespeare’s timeless romance.
Inside Music, an informative talk with James Keller, begins one hour prior to concerts and is free to ticketholders.
