In Other Words
Conductor: Thomas Wilkins
Mezzo-soprano: Aidan Soder
Strauss Performing Arts Center
Saturday, February 2, 2008, at 7 p.m.

Respighi: Ancient Airs and Dances, Suite I
Stravinsky: Ragtime
Copland: Old American Songs
Britten: Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge

"Maestro Wilkins presents an evening of music on borrowed themes. Britten’s masterpiece is based on a theme by his teacher, Frank Bridge; Copland borrowed American folk tunes to make a charming and profound set recalling bygone days; and Respighi called on the spirit of the renaissance in his sparkling Ancient Airs and Dances."
