THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Simon MacRae, conductors Tom Philipott BORODIN Overture to 'Prince Igor' COPLAND Appalachian Spring Suite SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2 in D The concert opens with Borodin's dramatic overture to his ballet, Prince Igor. A suite from Copland's ballet, Appalachian Spring, follows and charts the story of the honesty, humility and simplicity of a pioneering American frontier couple at the turn of the 19th-century. A rough parchment of Nordic saga follows as passion and struggle join witchcraft in Sibelius' impatient masterpiece.
