Great things often come in pairs. Twin sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton astound worldwide audiences who have seen them playing with incredible synchronicity. These Juilliard graduates perform French composer Francis Poulenc’s “Concerto for Two Pianos,” a delightful dialogue between the two pianists and the orchestra. Poulenc was inspired by Mozart while writing this concerto, and said, “I prefer Mozart to all other musicians.” This concerto with its dueling pianos is a perfect example of Poulenc’s light, charming style.

“Old Wine in New Bottles,” a suite for pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, French horns, and trumpets is a delightful interpretation of four Old English folk songs, each with its own charming title: “The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies,” “The Three Ravens,” “Begone, dull care,” and “Early one morning.” Our talented woodwinds and brass will illuminate the new life breathed into these captivating melodies by the Englsh composer Gordon Jacob.

We also perform “Concerto for Orchestra” by Hungarian Bela Bartok, featuring the famous “Game of Pairs” movement with pairs of bassoons, oboes, clarinets, flutes, and trumpets, each pair performing its own solo. Bartok incorporated eastern European folk music into this intensely dramatic piece which requires each musician to be a virtuoso. This will be a thrilling showcase for the orchestra.
