September 24, 2011 marks the start of the 2011-2012 season for the Missoula Symphony Orchestra. Many shows will be well worth traveling to see. Music fans, we hope you’ll order your season tickets and make reservations at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast soon.
The season begins with a star. Ilya Kaler has won the three greatest violin competitions in the world: the Paganini, the Tchaikovsky, and the Sibelius. He is the only violinist to have ever achieved this, and he is playing in Missoula on September 24 and 25.
Listeners will be treated to a “Gyspy Serenade” including:
- Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, by Franz Liszt
- Zigeurnerweisen, by Pabo de Sarasate
- Carmen Fantasy, by Pablo de Sarasate
- Les Preludes, by Franz Liszt
- Hary Janos Suite, by Zoltan Kodaly
The Gypsy Serenade is inspired in part by the 200th anniversary of Franz Liszt, who was fascinated by the gypsies of his homeland, Hungary. In addition, Kaler’s extraordinary talent will be highlighted in these pieces. Bring opera glasses and watch his fingers fly.
There are many good reasons to spend a weekend at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. The Missoula Symphony Orchestra is one of them.
