Lake Union Civic Orchestra: Ravel, Guinivan and Berlioz
Love Percussion? This LUCO concert is for you!
On Friday, June 3rd, the Lake Union Civic Orchestra performs Guinivan's Concerto for Percussion. The composer is the winner of the 2008 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award. This explosive piece employs Vibraphone, Xylophone, Tam Tam, Chimes, Triangle, gong, celesta, harps, and crotules (little brass cymbals). Also, on the program, is Ravel's Alborada del Gracioso (Morning Song of a Jester), a Spanish/Catalan inspired piece using castanets, tambourine, snare drum, and 2 harps, that will make you want to Samba in the aisles of Town Hall!
The final piece is Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique. This is the story of a young musician, who in the depths of lovesick despair, attempts suicide with opium, but only takes enough to induce psychedelic hallucinations. The last movement is the familiar Witches' Sabbath, which a lot of people will recognize from Julia Robert's movie, Sleeping with the Enemy.
