Thoughts from Morihiko

“I have a secret: I don’t actually have a degree in orchestral conducting. My initial goal as a conductor was to become a collegiate wind ensemble conductor, and I found a perfect environment at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music to study wind conducting with Rodney Winther. Rod, who just retired from CCM last year, became such an important mentor – I wouldn’t be here without those two years studying with him. One of the pieces I learned at CCM was French composer Jean Françaix’s colorful Hommage à l’ami Papageno for solo piano and wind octet. It’s a witty, delicious ‘medley’ of beloved melodies from Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Speaking of this opera, we’ll open the concert with its Overture. Plus, speaking of The Magic Flute, we’ll be featuring Wendy Cohen, our own magical flutist, in another French piece, Jacques Ibert’s virtuosic Flute Concerto. To complete the Mozart bookends, we’ll close with his timeless Symphony No. 40.”
