Beauty and cruelty in nature. Tuneful birds and deadly spiders. Soloist Eleanor Turner weaves a charming web in Patterson’s concerto for harp and strings. Respighi brings baroque imitations of bird song to today’s chamber orchestra and Roussel’s ballet music gives insects very human emotions with a surprising twist (spoiler alert). Mozart of course transcends all these earthly concerns.
