Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, whose vivid theatricality has marked the collective imagination through Disney‘s Fantasia, calls forth witches and supernatural beings in an infernal dance. For her Montreal debut, Baiba Skride demonstrates her exceptional talent in a performance of Mozart's Violin Concerto no. 3, a work exuding irresistible freshness. And the warm, deep tones of Todd Cope's clarinet flourish in Berio's Lied.
