Eric Paetkau, Conductor

Obsession is a powerful state of mind, one that takes control of and inspires great music. Prokofiev couldn’t stop thinking about perfection in his Symphony No. 1. The melody of Ravel’s Bolero haunted him every waking hour. Schubert’s Gretchen relentlessly spins the wheel waiting for her love. And, in Scott Good’s virtuosic saxophone concerto with soloist Wallace Halladay, Babbitt worries continuously about where he belongs.
