Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
Pictures at an Exhibition

Nir Kabaretti, Conductor
Brahms : Tragic Overture
Brahms: Double Concerto for Violin and Cello
Jessica Guideri, Violin
Trevor Handy , Cello

Composers throughout history have responded to inspiration from the visual arts, and Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky is one of the most famous examples. Keeping with this theme, the Symphony will perform Ravel’s beautiful orchestration of this masterwork accompanied by an animated film created by students and graduates at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. Interpretations of the music are woven into this animated film, rich with fantasy, whimsy, and adventure. In addition, the evening will feature Brahms’ daring Double Concerto for Violin and Cello highlighting the exceptional talents of concertmaster Jessica Guideri and principal cellist, Trevor Handy. Join the Santa Barbara Symphony for an evening full of musical and visual wonder.
