FORT WORTH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: Prokofievís Cinderella
Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra

January, 2012

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra continues the 2011-2012 Symphonic Series on Feb. 3-5 at Bass Performance Hall, with Music Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducting and FWSO principal clarinet Ana Victoria Luperi as soloist.

Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10-$79 at 817-665-6000 or www.fwsymphony.org.

The program includes two Russian classics—Borodin’s Symphony No. 2 in B Minor and selections from Prokofiev’s Cinderella—as well as a contemporary piece, Fantasía sobre Yma Sumac for clarinet and orchestra by composer-in-residence John B Hedges.

Highlights:

·         Prokofiev’s Cinderella is one of the great ballet scores, and a suite of its best numbers, as selected by Miguel Harth-Bedoya, makes up the first half of this program.

·         Principal clarinet Ana Victoria Luperi is repeatedly singled out by critics as one of the FWSO’s most outstanding young musicians. She met composer John B Hedges when both were students at the Curtis Institute, and he created Fantasía sobre Yma Sumac just for her. The second of three Hedges works the FWSO is performing this season, it’s a musical-fantasy portrait of Peruvian singer Yma Sumac, a genre-defying international recording star from the 1950s.
