Sarasota Orchestra Presents Musical Landscapes
See the world from your seat in the Sarasota Opera House with Musical Landscapes, an evening of sonorous scenic panoramas. Whitcare's luminous re-imagining of the River Cam, which flowed past his window at Cambridge University, features Sarasota Orchestra's own principal cellist Natalie Helm. Smetana paints a lush portrait of a Bohemian river in The Moldau. Mementos "remembered with affection" come to life in Barber's Souvenirs, while Copland transports us to the heart of the Midwest in poignant excerpts from The Tender Land. The sightseeing concludes with a sojourn to Scotland through Maxwell Davies's raucous portrait of An Orkney Wedding, With Sunrise, featuring bagpipe soloist Gary Reinstrom.
