Sandy Cameron returns to NJFO in Something new, something past

program

Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite

Prokofiev Violin Concerto No.2

Beethoven Symphony No. 7

Artist

David Wroe Conductor

Sandy Cameron Violin

The NJ Festival Orchestra brings together three giants of classical music, each work paying homage to material borrowed from the past and then unfolding in glorious symphonic splendor.

Igor Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite takes 18th-century Italian court music and freshens it up with kaleidoscopic modern orchestral colors, making the music shine and almost dance off the page.

Ukrainian-born Sergei Prokofiev highlights Russian folk melodies in his thoughtful and childlike Second Violin Concerto.

And finally, in his 7th Symphony, in the midst of the Napoleonic Wars, Ludwig van Beethoven stands up for the “people” through victorious and uplifting music and even requisitions an Irish reel in the finale!


MEET SOLOIST SANDY CAMERON

The NJ Festival Orchestra welcomes back violinist Sandy Cameron!
