Andrew Constantine, conductor
Andrew Wan, violin

Dukas — L’apprenti sorcier (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice)
Chausson — Poème, Op.25
Ravel — Tzigane, rapsodie de concert, for Violin & Orchestra
Stravinsky — Petrouchka

Colorful French works fill the first half of this concert, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, a work popularized in Walt Disney’s 1940 classic film Fantasia. Petrouchka is Stravinsky’s brilliant ballet burlesque about the playful and very naughty clown audiences have loved for over a century. And, it’s a tour de force for orchestra.
