- Domenico Cimarosa: Concerto in G major for Two Flutes
- Charles Tomlinson Griffes: Poem for Flute and Orchestra
- Vincent d’Indy: Symphony On A French Mountain Air
- Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68
The YSO showcases its own members in this virtuosic program. Barbra Baker, who has soloed with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra and Clifford Tretick, winner of the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition combine forces to perform a double flute concerto by Cimarosa. Pianist Gretchen Dekker sparkles as the soloist in a work by French composer Vincent d”Indy and the Orchestra performs a favorite work by Brahms, the triumphant First Symphony.
“Tretick’s technical and artistic expertise was stunning. Only in performance by master flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal have we heard that sort of accomplished display.”
– The Robesonian, North Carolina
Conducted by Dr. Robert Hart Baker
