OPENING WEEKEND: BRANFORD MARSALIS JOINS THE NJSO
Saxophone giant Branford Marsalis stars in the NJSO’s Opening Weekend, lending his luminous sound to cinematic master John Williams’ “Escapades” and Milhaud’s sprightly Scaramouche. To top it off, he plays the saxophone solo in Mussorgsky’s majestic Pictures at an Exhibition, which never fails to enthrall in Ravel’s colorful orchestration.
