BPO’s performance of Gliere was great

I listened to the Buffalo Philharmonic’s performance of Gliere’s Symphony No. 3 on May 8 on WNED-FM, and I wanted to add my applause in the form of this letter.

Probably unlike most others, I am well familiar with celebrated conductor Leopold Stokowski’s recording of the work (with the Philadelphia Orchestra, as I recall), and I will offer the opinion that the BPO and Maestro JoAnn Falletta offered to listeners the same level of excitement and virtuosity. Bravo!
