"Russian and French Nights"
Balakirev: Overture on Three Russian Folk Themes
Tchaikovsky: Robert’s aria from Iolanta
Gounod: “Avant de quitter ces lieux” from Faust
Lucas Meachem, baritone
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 2, “Little Russian”
The resonant musical worlds of France and Russia ring in this concert, with a Russian folktune-inspired opening and Guest Artist Lucas Meachem offering music from both cultures: a darkly sensuous aria from Iolanta, and a brother’s prayer for his sister from Faust. Tchaikovsky’s joyful Symphony No. 2 brings the second weekend of orchestra concerts to a tuneful and memorable close.
