robertWhitneyIn a press release from today, the Louisville Orchestra announces its 74th season with a tie-in to the upcoming documentary Music Makes a City: A Louisville Orchestra Story by Owsley Brown, III and Jerome Hiler.  The 2010-11 season reaches deep into some of the works recorded and premiered, including centenarian Elliot Carter’s Variations for Orchestra, Martin’s Petite symphonie concertante, and Lutoslawski’s Fanfare for Louisville.

Other substantial works include Mahler’s Symphony No. 9, Dvorak and Shostakovich’s Eighth Symphonies, Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps, and Poulenc’s Gloria. Guest soloists include Sarah Chang (Fanfara), Lee Luvisi and Sharon Isbin.

The 2010-11 season promises to be one of the most exciting and varied in recent memory, with enough to talk about and expect.
