Kabalevsky: Colas Breugnon Overture
Khachaturian: Violin Concerto
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

J.S. Bach International Violin Competition Gold Medalist Rachel Barton Pine returns to the Tucson Symphony for the first time since 2004 to perform Khachaturian’s crowd-pleasing concerto inspired by Armenian folk themes. Ravel’s orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition is a symphonic “top 10,” while the overture to Kabalevsky’s comic opera, Colas Breugnon, gets things off to a rousing start with its rhythmic drive. Young Brazilian conductor Marcelo Lehninger, winner of the League of American Orchestras’ Helen H. Thompson Award for Emerging Music Conductors, makes his TSO debut. He was recently appointed Music Director of the Grand Rapids Symphony after posts with the Boston and New West Symphonies.

Complimentary “Concert Comments” with the conductor and guest artist take place one hour before the performance and give you insight into what you’re about to hear.
