March 6-8, 2009
Robert Hanson, Conductor
Janacek Suite from Cunning Little Vixen
Kurka Suite from The Good Soldier Schweik
Dvorak Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World")
For those of you unfamilar with Robert Kurka's opera The Good Soldier Schweik, the suite is for winds and percussion only. It is a wonderful little work...also, quite difficult to perform. I was lucky enough to get to play the one trombone part on this piece!
