Program Notes with Sound Clips!

The sense of taste in music? Yes! Darius Milhaud’s jaunty amuse-bouche, Le boeuf sur le toit (The Ox on the Roof), may start your toes tapping and make your stomach hungry for more.  Next, we tease your palate with Bohuslav Martinu’s one act comedic ballet La revue de cuisine, where kitchen utensils such as a pot lid, dishcloth and mop come to life in a romantic culinary soap opera.  Special guests Visceral Dance Chicago bring the story to life with original choreograpy by Nick Pupillo.  Mozart’s delicious Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola follows, with soloists David Perry and Carol Cook — always in good taste.  We close the concert with Johann Strauss’s sparkling Champagne Polka.
