- David Bowie's "Abdulmajid," reimagined by Philip Glass
- Georges Bizet's Incidental Music for "L'Arlésienne"
- Astor Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires," featuring the renowned Argentinian violinist Tomas Cotik · Astor Piazzolla pays homage to the music of Antonio Vivaldi with his own four movement, tango-inflected "Four Seasons," which reflects the life and soul of his native Buenos Aires. This signature work from the 1960s is deeply informed by Piazzolla's multicultural upbringing, which saw him introduce influences of classical, jazz, rock and klezmer into a unique Nuevo Tango style. Originally composed for Piazzolla's own quintet, we feature the new PSU violin professor, Tomas Cotik, in an arrangement for solo violin and string orchestra by the Russian composer Leonid Desyatnikov.
