WEILL  Suite from The Threepenny Opera
RACHMANINOV   Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
KHACHATURIAN   Suite from Spartacus
BLACHER   Orchestral Variations on a Theme by Paganini

Kurt Weill’s Suite from The Threepenny Opera showcases American jazz’s influence in 1920s Europe and features instrumentation that includes the banjo, bandoneon, and a trap set. Sergei Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, with Natasha Paremski returning as soloist, evokes the three-movement form of Romanticist concertos, but written as a single movement. Boris Blacher’s Orchestral Variations on a Theme by Paganini opens with Paganini’s theme, finishing with a grand ending in the final bars. Aram Khachaturian’s Suite from Spartacus remains one of his best-known works.
