Guest artist: Carlos Aguilar, flute (2015 Young Artists Winner) Guest conductor Michael Gerdes leads a perennial favorite, Pictures at an Exhibition, composed when Mussorgsky was 35. That should have been the midpoint of a great career, but–tragically–he was dead only seven years later. LJS&C Young Artists first-place winner Carlos Aguilar plays Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, a very playful (and a very funny) piece of music. Vivian Fung offers her own set of “pictures” in a colorful musical response to works of public art from the 2014-16 Vancouver Art Biennale.
