Princeton University Orchestra conductor Michael Pratt always starts off his ensemble’s season with a demanding program. No matter how many seniors have graduated the previous spring, the University Orchestra manages to begin the year focused and concentrated on performing concerts of music which would challenge even the most experienced players. This was the case this past weekend as the orchestra presented the first concerts of its 2009-2010 season in Richardson Auditorium. The performance Saturday night (the program was repeated on Sunday afternoon) featured the music of Maurice Ravel, Sergei Prokofiev, and Dmitri Shostakovich, as well as one of the more delightful works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The program also featured two soloists with strong Princeton connections.
