GARROP: Krakatoa
STRAVINSKY: Pulcinella Suite

Champiagn-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, Stephen Alltop, Conductor

Carol Cook, viola

This colorful program takes volcanos as its subject. CUSO welcomes Carol Cook, principal viola with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, to perform Composer-in-Residence Stacy Garrop’s new viola concerto, Krakatoa, a work that is as dramatic and explosive as the title would suggest.

Rossini’s bubbly overture to The Barber of Seville and Schubert’s lovely Symphony No. 5 both date from 1816, “The Year Without a Summer,” caused by the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora. Stravinsky’s delightful suite from Pulcinella will highlight many solo instruments of the orchestra.
