Programme Note

Jeff Tyzik's masterly orchestration and arranging skills are on full display here: the themes of these perennial favorites emerge from orchestral textures that feature cascading runs in strings, rhythmic brilliance in brass and woodwinds, and creative play with modulation and meter. An ideal concert opener.
