This will be followed by selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2, which portrays Shakespeare’s story with vivid musical imagery, and the moving fourth movement of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, conducted by Jacob Joyce, ‘14.Program: Maurice Ravel: Alborada del graciosoSergei Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2 (selections)Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 - IV.
