Two chamber orchestras - the Israel Kibbutz Orchestra and the Sinfonietta Beer Sheva - join forces in a series of symphonic music inspired by enchanting fairy-tales and legends called "Music From the World of Legends" Paul Dukas, from a French-Jewish family and a friend of composer Claude Debussy, composed The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which depicts a magician's young apprentice who brings a broom to life. It is one of the most popular works in the entire musical repertoire; many people remember Micky Mouse desperately trying to escape a never-ending, overflowing bucket of water in time to it in Walt Disney's landmark Fantasia (1940). In the middle of the program is Debussy's Nocturnes in three movements, Nuages ("Clouds"), Fetes ("Festivals") and Sirenes ("Sirens"), which was based on the Greek myth of the Sirens. The Sirens, they say, had the features of young women, but from the thighs down they had the forms of birds. One of them played the lyre, another sang, and another played the flute. By these means, and by clever and deceitful words, they persuaded passing sailors to linger, thereby causing their destruction. Rounding off the program is Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade," based on the Arabian tales of "A Thousand and One Nights." One of the beautiful features of this work is the solo violin part, which will be shared in alternating performances by concertmasters of the two orchestras, Yaron Prensky (pictured) of the Sinfonietta and Ella Violin of the Kibbutz Orchestra. The conductors, Doron Salomon of the Sinfonietta and Yaron Gottfried of the Kibbutz Orchestra, will also be alternating peformances. Kibbutz Givat Brenner, Auditorium, Saturday, 9 p.m. (08) 944-3433; Kibbutz Ein Hashofet, Auditorium, Monday, 8:30 p.m. (04) 959-8506; Nahariya's Heichal Hatarbut, Thursday, 8:30 p.m. (04) 982-9933; Ashkelon's Heichal Hatarbut, Saturday (June 23) 8:30 p.m.; Beersheva's Heichal Hatarbut, Tuesday (June 26) at 8:30 p.m., (08) 627-1065; (08) 671-8777.
