TCHAIKOVSKY   Sleeping Beauty Suite, Op. 66a

Musical genres – and their inspiration – take many forms.  Respighi was one of the first composers of the 20th century to seek inspiration from early music: his Ancient Airs and Dances presents brilliant orchestrations of Renaissance dance music originally written for lute.  Sibelius whisks us to eastern Finland with his patriotic Karelia Suite. Drawn from a larger work written to accompany tableaux of Karelian history, its three movements draw on folk melodies and delight the listener with vivid soundscapes.  The dreaminess of a French poem wends its way into Debussy’s impressionistic Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune.  And the classic fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty,” retold in ballet form and beautifully scored by Tchaikovsky, is itself revisited in this magnificent suite for orchestra.  Join the GVYO on February 3, and let these young musicians inspire you!
