“A masterful interpreter” (Baltimore Sun), British conductor Gilbert Varga brings his elegant, electric style to the lush melodic legends of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade—and to the blazing colors and shocking storyline of Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin. John Corigliano’s Mannheim Rocket offers an explosive opening.
