The October 23rd concert highlights the FSO and the fine players within it. As part of its three-year Sibelius exploration, the FSO will perform the symphonic fantasy Pojhola's Daughter, another of his wonderfully evocative tales. Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante features FSO Concertmaster, David Salness, and Principal Viola, Gregory Rupert, as soloists. Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra makes similar virtuosic demands on individual players and orchestral sections alike, allowing the FSO to, as Zimmerman says, "place the spotlight on itself."
