This is a well-deserved tribute to an exciting composer who I think is most interesting when he creates new sonorities and textures and chord combinations. It's always a delight when a music director forms an artistic relationship with an active composer. This program offered the advantage of having the composer comment before the playing of each work. I particularly enjoy "Expo", "Gran Duo" and "Souvenir".
