The two winners of the Symphony’s annual Competition for Young Musicians will be featured soloists on a program which provides special treats for music lovers of every persuasion. “The Moldau” of Bedrich Smetana portrays a waterway’s inspiring transformation from tiny springs to a noble river. A solo violin leads the orchestra in a nocturnal dance of death in the “Danse macabre” of Camille Saint-Saëns. The orchestra’s wind players will be highlighted in the sparkling spontaneity of the Wind Serenade of Antonin Dvorák. The popular Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise, by Peter Maxwell Davies brings to life a spirited, all-night marriage celebration complete with bagpipes.
