Ensemble: NEC Philharmonia

Conductor: Hugh Wolff

This season, NEC's orchestra programs allow you to discover the music of living composers—many of them women—alongside familiar masterworks.

A "featured composer" this summer on the website of her publisher Boosey & Hawkes, Anna Clyne emphasizes cross-media collaboration in her output, saying "my intention is to create music that complements and interacts with other art-forms."

Her Night Ferry, performed tonight, was premiered by Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Clyne says: "I decided to try a new process in creating this work—simultaneously painting the music, whilst writing it."

Program

Mahler: Symphony no 1 in D major "Titan"
Langsam, schleppend; Immer sehr gemächlich
Kräftig bewegt, doch nicht zu schnell
Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen
Stürmisch bewegt - Energisch

Date: September 28, 2016 - 7:30PM
