PSO Presents Unique World Premiere

This past weekend, Princeton Symphony Orchestra presented the
world premiere of a piece featuring instruments rarely heard in
orchestral works. Led by guest conductor Sameer Patel, the
Orchestra performed American composer and violinist William
Harvey’s Seven Decisions of Gandhi with the composer as violin
soloist, musical artist Dibyarka Chatterjee playing the Hindustani
tabla, with the added orchestral color of the sitar, played by
Snehesh Nag. Saturday night’s performance (the concert was
repeated Sunday afternoon) teamed Harvey’s work with late 19thcentury
Russian music of Alexander Borodin and Pyotr Ilyich
Tchaikovsky, taking the audience at Richardson Auditorium on a
musical ride of dynamic contrasts and rich orchestral writing.
