This program explores art and poetry through music with conductor Ludwig Carrasco, who was recently appointed Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico. Texas State University’s Michael Ippolito’s Nocturne was inspired by Joan Miro’s 1940 painting of the same name. Ippolito studied composition with our next composer, John Corigliano, at The Juilliard School. Corigliano’s Fern Hill, featuring UTSA’s Crystal Jarrell Johnson and the San Antonio Mastersingers, reflects on the eponymous poem by Dylan Thomas. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition famously takes the listener on a sensory tour of ten paintings through an art exhibition.
