XIAN ZHANG conductor NING FENG violin RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Capriccio espagnol Inspired by Spanish dance, Russia's Rimsky-Korsakov turns a brilliant solo spotlight on members of the orchestra. QIGANG CHEN La joie de la souffrance for Violin and Orchestra (US Premiere and NJSO Co-Commission) "The Joy of Suffering" explores the composer's view that joy and suffering are "a matter of 'Yin' and 'Yang,' inseparable and hence all things should contain both. Like loss and gain, they are bound to balance out." SAINT-SAËNS Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso A soulful start prepares the listener for a heartbreaking piece--then fireworks erupt. The soloist's left hand blurs on the fingerboard, and the bowings require an elite athlete's stamina and grace. Only the best violinists like Feng can make this piece sing. FALLA Suite No. 2 from The Three-Cornered Hat From the ballet stage comes this lighthearted Spanish tale filled with rhythm and seduction.
