Cristian Macelaru conductor
Nicola Benedetti violin

Bernstein Candide Overture
Wynton Marsalis Violin Concerto
Mussorgsky (orch. Ravel) Pictures at an Exhibition

Nicola Benedetti’s second visit this season brings with it the concerto that was written for her by New Orleans jazz trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis. Taking his inspiration from Benedetti’s travels, her Scottish ancestry, and her request to “invite a diverse world of people into the experience”, it’s an expressive and evocative contemporary classic. Modest Mussorgky’s Pictures at an Exhibition began life as a finger-crunching solo piano piece, written in tribute to his artist friend Viktor Hartmann. It became a concert hall classic in Maurice Ravel’s peerless 1922 orchestration. Mussorgsky’s gallery of vivid portraits and scenes, from a grotesque gnome and squabbling children to the witch, Baba Yaga, concludes as the peeling bells of the Great Gate of Kiev summon a spectacular procession, its resonant chorales crowned by blazing brass fanfares.
