Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
Pictures at an Exhibition

Nir Kabaretti, Conductor
Jessica Guideri, Violin
Trevor Handy , Cello

Composed in 1887, Brahms’ daring Double Concerto for Violin and Cello ingeniously combines the sonority and range of both instruments, thereby overcoming the inherent sonic limitations of each. These performances will feature the exceptional talents of Jessica Guideri and Trevor Handy, the Santa Barbara Symphony’s concertmaster and principal cellist, respectively. Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is in intent and effect a musical gallery, evoking a succession of striking tableaus. Despite its excessive use as an erotic mood-setter in film and elsewhere, Maurice Ravel’s Boléro has lost none of its power to seduce – or inspire the occasional amorous thought.

Brahms: Double Concerto for Violin and Cello
