A sense of place - that elusive quality comes through in all three pieces on this appealing program. Featuring violinist Stefan Jackiw, hailed by the Boston Post for playing that is "striking for its intelligence and sensitivity." PISTON The Incredible Flutist Witty and charming, Piston's captivating ballet score tells the story of a colorful circus - complete with star flutist - arriving in a small village. PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 Graceful, lyrical and angular: Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto was written during a European tour, accounting for its multitude of national styles. DVORAK Symphony No. 8 Dvorak drew inspiration from the moods, songs and rhythms of country life for this proud ode to his native Bohemia.
