“Never look at the trombone section,” composer and conductor Richard Strauss once quipped, “as it will only encourage them.” Tonight the HSO and our featured soloists celebrate the instrument in grand style with the Trombone Concerto of Paul Creston and the Alabama premiere of Ricardo Mollá’s Concerto for Two Trombones. Both suites from Ravel’s groundbreaking ballet Daphnis et Chloé, among the greatest twentieth-century orchestral showpieces, are all on the program.
