In October and December, 2023, Robertson begins a three year tenure as the Utah Symphony and Opera’s inaugural Creative Partner with evolutionary concert ideas at three junctures each season. The fall concerts will feature a monumental focus on the human voice, including Bruckner’s Christus factus est, Act II from Berg’s Wozzeck, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9; and a poetic sense of place, with En Saga by Sibelius, Ives’ Three Places in New England, and Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony. The 2023-24 trilogy of Utah concerts will culminate in the Spring with the first live manifestation of Robertson’s international guitar ensemble, Another Night on Earth, created virtually with colleagues from three continents during the lock-down period and featuring works ranging from the Renaissance to Rock and Roll. In addition to Robertson, the ensemble includes star artists transcending musical worlds: Joe Gore, Daniele Gottardo, Jiji, Steven Mackey, Gretchen Menn, James Moore and Heiko Ossig.
