We open with the World Premiere of Russell Platt’s Symphony in Three Movements (For Clyfford Still) inspired by the abstract impressionist works of the title artist that hang in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Then, we travel back in time to the street fairs of ages past with jovial Russian waltzes, curiosities and enchantment in Stravinsky’s most beloved symphony Pétrouchka, the epically tragic tale of a magical street performer and his puppets, and his journey from life to afterlife. Finally, we welcome Concertmaster Nikki Chooi, who will mesmerize audiences with his BPO concerto debut, the virtuosic Brahms Violin Concerto.
