The Program

  • Bartók—Dance Suite: When Béla Bartók was commissioned to compose a piece celebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of Budapest, he nodded to the traditionalism of the old city Buda and the bustle of the commercial hub of Pest with a lively suite that evokes classic folk tunes.
  • Brady—Requiem 21.5 – Concerto for Violin: Tim Brady’s Requiem 21.5 sprung from a seed of tragedy in 1984, when the death of his close friend Lawrence Beauregard inspired a piece devoted to the flutist’s memory. In 2009, he returned to the project, interweaving snippets of Mozart’s Requiem and Edgar Varèse’s Density 21.5 to make a heartbreaking whole.
  • Shostakovich—Symphony No. 6: If the solemnity and measured pace of the first movement is to be believed, this symphony would be the perfect soundtrack to Death of a Salesman performed by turtles. But don’t be fooled—the tempo increases dramatically in the sprightly second movement.
