Raphael Jiménez, Conductor Finalist


Ravel – Ma Mère l’Oye (Mother Goose): 5 pièces enfantines (Suite)
Lorenz – Pataruco: Concerto for Maracas and Orchestra
Manuel Rangel, maracas
Shostakovich – Symphony No.9, op.70, E-flat major


Playing with our expectations is at the essence of all great music. What do Ravel’s fairytale-inspired instrumental combinations, Lorenz’s use of Venezuelan Maracas as a solo instrument, and Shostakovich’s Symphony No.9 have in common? They are all unexpected artistic statements made by three seemingly dissimilar composers who span the 20th century. Join us for an evening filled with orchestral color on a program that will delightfully challenge your musical expectations. — R. Jiménez
