The concert was shaped by musical excellence and by the successful realization of several discrete goals. Contemporary composers, represented by both short, occasional pieces and monumental works, were championed; young artists’ careers were moved forward; neglected music was brought out for renewal.
I know that I will never know any of the repertoire on your concert, but I know that I will always love the program. These are events which should not be missed!
is about CREATIVITY
is about FLEXIBILITY
is about FINDING THE NEW / REDISCOVERING THE OLD
Composers are inspired by life, nature and their surroundings: whether by the more than 150,000 lakes in Finland, the Northern Lights in Canada, or the astronomical wonders of our Cosmos. To honor the 150th birth year of Jean Sibelius, SONOS performs “The Wood Nymph” and commissioned a new Concerto for 2 Pianos and Chamber Orchestra (including a “Valse Triste”) by Fredrik Sixten. South Korea’s Piano Duo Yoo & Kim (winners of the 2013 Dranoff International 2 Piano Competition) will perform. Also on the program is Pulitzer Prize winning composer Paul Moravec, and Finnish composer Pehr Henrik Nordgen.
