This is fun - I'm loving some of M.I.'s concerts! I'll play along...
Schuman: Three Places in New England
Saint-SaŽns: Piano concerto no. 5 (Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, piano)*
Liszt: 'Chapelle de Guillaume Tell', from Annťes de Pelerinage/Suisse (orch. Brannigan)**
Nielsen: Symphony no. 4 'Inextinguishable'
Chicago Symphony Orchestra, cond. James Brannigan
*Part of a series (to be recorded by Chandos) featuring Mr. Bavouzet in all five Saint-SaŽns concerti
**I arranged this for orchestra way back in 1989 and always wondered how it would sound. In my brief life as a composer, I never finished a mature work for full orchestra , so this will have to do!
That's awesome! I would absolutely go to that concert. Of course, I'd go to any concert with the Saint-Saens concerti. In fact, in my "Concert programs" Word doc, I have a whole series planned out - the Saint-Saens+French ballet (mostly) festival:
Debussy | Prelude a 'L'apres-midi d'un faune'
Saint-Saens | Piano Concerto No 1
Poulenc | Les biches
Saint-Saens | Piano Concerto No 2
Pierne | Cydalise et le Chevre-Pied
Dukas | L'apprenti sorcier
Saint-Saens | Piano Concerto No 3
Roussel | Bacchus et Ariane
Saint-Saens | Piano Concerto No 4
Ravel | Daphnis et Chloe
Berlioz | Le mort de Cleopatre
Schmitt | La tragedie de Salome
Saint-Saens | Piano Concerto No 5
Notice the last one preserves a 'Middle East' theme
