Stories and tales come alive with dazzling effect when set to music.

From Telemann in his most outlandish mode, to Ravel at his most exotic, to the Respighi of operatic intensity, to Stravinsky in his incomparable theatrical vein, this concert is an extraordinary sonic anthology of adventures and tragedy.
