Ingenious Interplay celebrates the Marin Symphony’s 59th season by pairing two contemporary pieces by Estonian classical composer Arvo Pärt with four of Bach’s famous Brandenburg concertos. Concertmaster Jeremy Constant’s sprightly violin solos gradually give way to cinematic menace in Pärt’s Fratres, which audiences may recognize from the film There Will Be Blood in the scene where Daniel Day Lewis teaches his son how to apply a fake mustache. Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten elegizes the titular English composer with mournful strings and tubular bells, and the complex orchestration of Bach’s Brandenburg concertos no. 1, 3, 4, and 5 capture the whimsy and regality of the Baroque era. Prior to the show, ticketholders can explore the music’s history and learn how to clean a trumpet with peanut butter with conductor Alasdair Neale during a free one-hour discussion. A Tuesday-night wrap party invites guests to hobnob with the orchestra over drinks and complimentary hors d’oeuvres at the nearby Embassy Suites. The Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Marin Center sends showgoers to and from the 1,960-seat Memorial Auditorium amid leaping arches and soaring atria.
