Another exciting contemporary piece this season is a world premiere viola concerto by Behzad Ranjbaran. Principal violist of the London Symphony, Paul Silverthorne, debuts on our stage to perform the new work. Members of the SRS Youth Orchestra perform side-by-side with our professional musicians for Borodin’s Dances, an orchestral showpiece by an important 19th century Russian composer. Rimsky-Korsakov’s enchanting symphonic suite based on tales from The Arabian Nights caps the program.
