My Program: Gioacchino Rossini – Overture to `The Barber of Seville`
Peter Maxwell Davies – Mavis in Las Vegas
Ernö von Dohnanyi – Variations on a Nursery Tune Op. 25
Igor Stravinsky – Jeu de Cartes
Maurice Ravel – La Valse
The case for my program: Dohnanyi`s Variations on a Nursery Tune, for piano and orchestra is subtitled, For the enjoyment of humorous people and for the annoyance of others. The same could be said of much of the rest of program. There are links between several of the works. Two pieces are quoted in a third. Two are themes with variations and all except the Rossini are eclectic in style.
