Five different composers celebrate countries other than their homelands. Franz Joseph Haydn's "Oxford" Symphony is one of music's greatest thank-you gifts, written to acknowledge Haydn's Honorary Doctorate from that august institution. George Gershwin's An American in Paris and Malcolm Arnold's Four Scottish Dances are musical picture-postcards of their composers' travels. Bizet's great opera "Carmen" is the basis for Pablo de Sarasate's fiendishly virtuosic "Carmen" Fantasy for violin and orchestra. The concert opens with Nicolas Slonimsky's My Toy Balloon, a set of variations on a charming Brazilian folksong.
