Here's my latest "advertisement" for the Brockton Symphony Orchestra. You can click on the link to hear the radio commercial, with snippets of all four pieces on the program for October 27th. Maestro James Orent told me the players will need all their strength - those Russians wrote vigorous (my word, not James') music.
