Benjamin Franklin said, “Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.” This concert features music inspired by life and death, including Bach’s Sonatina from "Actus Tragicus," written for a funeral; Mussorgsky’s "Night on Bald Mountain," familiar from the animated film "Fantasia;" Ravel’s evocative "Pavane for a Dead Princess;" Saint-Saëns’ devilish "Danse Macabre;" and Piazzolla’s irresistible "Oblivion" and "Libertango." Refresh your mind and find the true meaning of life.
