The spotlight shines on VSO musicians Julia Lockhart and Jeanette Jonquil in the lovely Duet Concertino for Clarinet and Bassoon by Richard Strauss, and Maestro Tausk presents Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet in a way that Vancouver audiences have never heard before, in a suite that features not only the most famous sections, but also some of the rarely-performed music in between that is in fact some of the most beautiful music in the entire work.
