Pierre Boulez, Dérive 2
Jonathan Russell, Light Cathedral (WORLD PREMIERE)


This April we will usher in the spring with Pierre Boulez's formidable Dérive 2, a powerful 20th century work for chamber orchestra. Also on this concert will be the World Premiere of a new work for orchestra by Jonathan Russell, the winner of our 2015 Call for Scores. 

In Summer 2015, dozens of composers from around the world sent scores and recordings of their best works. The winners of this competition, Jonathan Russell and Andrew Posner were each commissioned to write a new piece to be performed alongside an orchestral repertoire standard. Nick Omiccioli won an award for Honorable Mention, and we will be performing his piece [fuse] on our concert in May.
