Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra: Beauty, Bliss and Branford with Andrey Boreyko, conductor, and Branford Marsalis, alto saxophone
Andrey Boreyko, conductor
Branford Marsalis, alto saxophone
Prokofiev’s jaunty and popular Lieutenant Kijé Suite sets the tone for the evening’s star, Branford Marsalis, genius of the jazz and classical worlds. He performs the accessible Tallahatchie Concerto by Dutch composer “Jacob TV,” who describes his music as “voyages of discovery for moments of beauty, bliss and ecstasy.” Andrey Boreyko marshals huge orchestral forces for the shimmering exoticism of Scriabin’s The Poem of Ecstasy.
