Performance features the American premiere of Fernande Breilh-Decruck’s Suite Romane, alongside Stravinsky’s whimsical Suite from Pulcinella and Brahms’s majestic Fourth Symphony
The Jackson Symphony Orchestra is proud to announce the opening concert of its 67th season, to take place on Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 PM at the Potter Center, 2111 Emmons Rd., Jackson, MI 49201.
Titled “Ancient Inspiration,” Music Director Designate Matthew Aubin begins the season with three works that utilize elements from the Baroque style. First up is the American premiere of Fernande Breilh-Decruck’s Suite Romane, discovered by Dr. Aubin on a recent trip to France and edited by him for modern performance. Select Jackson Community Strings and Jackson Youth Symphony Orchestra members will join the JSO on this special premiere. Following is Stravinsky’s whimsical Suite from Pulcinella — a work that sounds more like Vivaldi than Stravinsky! The concert concludes with Brahms’s majestic Fourth symphony.
Fernande Breilh-Decruck | Suite Romane (Roman Suite)
Igor Stravinsky | Suite from Pulcinella
Johannes Brahms | Symphony No.4, op.98 in E minor
Conductor: Matthew Aubin, Music Director Designate
