The Programme


George Gershswin
An American In Paris

An American in Paris is a jazz-influenced orchestral piece by American composer George Gershwin first performed in 1928.
It was inspired by the time that Gershwin had spent in Paris and evokes the sights and energy of the French capital during the Années folles.


John Williams
The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: Music from the Original Soundtrack is the score to the 1982 film of the same name composed and conducted by John Williams


Modest Mussorgsky
Night on a Bald Mountain

Night on Bald Mountain is a series of compositions by Modest Mussorgsky (1839–1881). Interestingly this piece was never performed in any form during Mussorgsky's lifetime. In 1886, five years after Mussorgsky's death, Rimsky-Korsakov published an arrangement of the work, described as a "fantasy for orchestra.". It is through Rimsky-Korsakov's version that Night on Bald Mountain achieved lasting fame
