Pictures at an Exhibition
October 6–8, 2022
Dark and stormy French skies dominate this program, with Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice opening the program. Ravel’s lush orchestration of Mussorgsky’s original work for solo piano vividly bring these images to life. Richard Strauss’ Duet Concertino is a surprising ‘first performance’ for the Seattle Symphony. Imagined as a dialogue between beauty and the beast, it highlights the lyricism of the clarinet and the gruffer solo bassoon, performed by Benjamin Lulich and Seth Krimsky.
