Impressionism and Beyond—Debussy, Ravel and Martinu

September 07, 2013 @ 8:00 PM
Gusman Concert Hall

Frost Symphony Orchestra
Cristian Marcelaru, Guest Conductor

Associate Conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra/Frost School alumnus Cristian Mărcelaru B.M. ’03, returns to the Gusman Concert Hall stage as Guest Conductor with the Frost Symphony Orchestra. Last year Mărcelaru received the 2012 Sir George Solti Emerging Conductor Award, a prestigious honor only awarded once before in the foundation’s history. Recent engagements have included The Chicago, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and San Diego symphony orchestras. The program will include the impressionist worlds of Claude Debussy’s controversial ballet “Jeux” with Maurice Ravel’s sensual “Une Barque sur l’Ocean” and vital “Alborada del gracioso” from the Miroirs suite. The second half of the concert features the sweeping melodies and Czech rhythms of Bohuslav Martinů’s Symphony No. 1 – a work written for the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Serge Koussevitzky.
