Classical spree - Saturday - Maison symphonique

23. Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain Conducted by Kent Nagano

23. Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain
Conducted by Kent Nagano

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, whose vivid theatricality has marked the collective imagination through Disney‘s Fantasia, calls forth witches and supernatural beings in an infernal dance. For her Montreal debut, Baiba Skride demonstrates her exceptional talent in a performance of Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 3, a work exuding irresistible freshness. And the warm, deep tones of Todd Cope’s clarinet flourish in Berio’s Lied.

“Ms. Skride brought a wide tonal palette to her insightful and passionate interpretation, her tone meaty and bold to open, then sweet, gossamer and brash.” – The New York Times
