On April 15 and April 16, the St. Louis Symphony performs the overture to Polyeucte, by Paul Dukas; Camille Saint-Saëns’s Fifth Piano Concerto; and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated by Maurice Ravel. (That’s Camille Saint-Saëns in the photograph.)
Here’s a link to my program notes, which start on p. 26:
Wow! These notes find you in top form!

Thank you! Hope you were able to listen to the live broadcast last night. It was tremendous–I so wish I could have made it to one of the performances. Lortie (the soloist on the “Egyptian”) was phenomenal.
