Alfred Schnittke – Moz-Art à la Haydn
Quinn Mason – Svitani (world premiere)
Graham Cohen – Gamelan for String Orchestra
Franz Joseph Haydn – Symphony No. 45 in F-sharp minor “The Farewell”
MusicaNova Orchestra performs an uplifting concert of renewal, shared humanity, and strength of purpose. Alfred Schnittke’s Moz-Art à la Haydn opens the concert with musicians entering the stage one by one (social distancing!) and riffing on an unfinished pantomime by W.A. Mozart. Svitani (which means “dawn” in Czech), by written by rising young composer Quinn Mason for MusicaNova, focuses on renewal, rebirth, and hope. Graham Cohen’s Gamelan for String Orchestra recreates the sound of Indonesian percussion ensembles. And the concert bookends with Haydn’s “Farewell” Symphony, in which the musicians leave the stage one by one.
The livestream will take place at 8pm Mountain / 7pm Pacific.
